New iPhone 5 Coming with Nano SIM Card, Carriers Already Testing It: Confirmed
Recently, we heard that European carriers were stockpiling nano-SIM cards in expectancy for the launch of the next-generation iPhone-iPhone 5. Interestingly enough, the nano-SIM eliminates all unnecessary plastic from the micro-SIM, which finally results in saving those valuable extra millimeters within a mobile device for more significant hardware.
Now BGR confirms that next iPhone sets are coming with the new nano SIM cards which are already being tested by mobile carriers. The site has also confirmed NFC, 4G LTE features for new iPhone 5 that is currently in production stage. The site claims that mobile carriers throughout Europe are now testing the miniature SIM cards going to be fit in next generation iPhone.
The site also refers various carrier sources, and it seems that, Apple is delivering nano-SIMs with specially-suited adapters (alike they did with micro-SIM), enabling its carrier partners to test and guarantee the network runs efficiently on the new, smaller SIM before placing a nano-SIM tray on devices.
As per BGR reports, the mass production of the next iPhone was not yet reported by the apple manufacturers, and likely Apple wants to launch the new SIM with the unannounced device. The Cupertino business group has received approval for the new smaller SIM, and with the thinnest “iPhone 5″ to date, it seems more logical for the company to take all the indispensable steps in adopting this technology in minimum timeframe.
The extra space found due to mini SIM cards would be highly valuable to Apple, but we believe that iPhone users will be a little upset to notice a new SIM standard in a quick session after the introduction of micro-SIM with the iPhone 4.
Moreover, changing SIMs between devices with different size trays is surely very disgusting since it compels users to use of tape and scissors just for making your SIM workable on your devices.
