Cupertino-based tech giant Apple is reportedly planning to launch iPhone models without a SIM slot by September 2022.
A speculation on the Brazilian website earlier this week claimed that iPhone 15 Pro models launching in 2023 may not have a physical SIM card slot. Apple has advised major US carriers to prepare for the launch of eSIM-only smartphones by September 2022, according to a new report .
Apple may remove the physical SIM card slot beginning with some iPhone 14 models, rather than some iPhone 15 models as previously speculated. There will also be support for two eSIM cards, allowing for dual SIM functionality. The removal of the SIM card slot may improve water resistance even more.
The next flagship series, the iPhone 14, will have storage capacities of up to 2 TB. Apple will use QLC flash storage in next year’s iPhone, increasing capacity to 2 TB thanks to the newer storage technology.
Next year, Apple is expected to add a 48MP camera lens to the iPhone, followed by a periscope lens in 2023.
Over the next two years, these iPhone camera upgrades will help Taiwanese manufacturer Largan Precision increase its market share, revenue, and profit. The 48MP camera will only be available on iPhone 14 Pro models and will support 8K video recording instead of the current 4K. 8K videos would be suitable for viewing on Apple’s upcoming AR/VR headset, which is expected to be released next year.
