Apple has followed suit of other big names in cellular phones; adopting dual SIM options for the next generation of IPhone to be unveiled in the coming months among other hardware enhancements.
These enhancements include Apple plans to bring the notch to more devices with a replacement to the iPhone 8. This iPhone will feature a 6.1-inch LCD display with a notch as well as a single camera on the back of the device. It should be as expensive as the iPhone 8 today.There have been rumors in the past that Apple was looking at selling iPhones with two SIM cards. It was unclear if Apple wanted to put a normal SIM tray and a second e-SIM card like on the Apple Watch.But according to these configuration files, this model will let one add two physical SIM cards — there are references to “second SIM status” and “second SIM tray status”.
Apple could limit dual SIM support to some models in particular. For instance, it could be limited to the rumored iPhone X Plus, or maybe the high-end OLED models. Many users don’t need two SIM slots. But it’s an essential feature for some countries. For instance, in few countries, cell carriers are regional companies. If you travel back and forth between two destinations, you need two SIM cards and two plans.Frequent travelers could also use a second SIM slot to avoid expensive roaming fees. It’s usually cheaper to buy a local SIM card. By using two SIM cards, you get the best of both worlds because you can still receive two-factor text messages, keep your phone number for iMessage and more.
