The iPhone 14 signs the death of the SIM card, the page turns


Apple yesterday unveiled its new flagship phone, the iPhone 14. Although many of the proposed improvements represent minor improvements compared to the iPhone 13, one feature of this next-generation device could change the mobile phone landscape.

Despite Apple’s claims, the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are still not revolutions in the field of mobile phones. It is even said that switching to the A16 Bionic chip will bring a slight performance advantage compared to the previous generation. While iOS 16 will bring its share of new features, overall, Apple is content with improving a lineup of products that seem to be changing in small steps.

People who looked at the Apple keyword will have noticed a big change: The SIM card will disappear! In America first, but there is no doubt that this revolution will quickly reach the shores of Europe and then the world. iPhone 14 users will remove the SIM cardand this situation, after the classic phase of rejection by the public and other manufacturers, will probably spread to all players in the mobile phone.

Once again Apple breaks the rules to create a trend

Leaving the SIM card, the microphone jack, or even using the Lightning port. Apple is well known for abandoning technology standards to impose its own. At first glance, other brands mock the one-sided and confusing decisions of the Cupertino company, as evidenced by this video of Samsung mocking the latest iPhone 14. In fact, however, sooner or later they follow the direction dictated by Apple.

So Apple has decided that the stupid SIM card has had its day. There is no doubt that the competition will also leave the old chip. The eSIM card has inevitable advantages for mobile operators, mobile phone manufacturers (saving space), but also for customers, who no longer need to go through their operators to change the chip.

This ease of use remains theoretical at the moment, the experience being far from uniform and proving to be very different from one operating system to another, even from one device to another. For regular users, however, switching generally means that it will be easier and faster to switch operators.
