New Delhi: Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models may be launched without any physical SIM slot, as the tech giant may only offer support for eSIM in its upcoming range of smartphones.
The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models are expected to launch in 2023. According to a report by Brazilian website, Blog do iPhone, Apple may launch two smartphones without a physical SIM slot.
Both the devices will support only eSIM card for connectivity. The smartphone is expected to offer support for two eSIM cards, thereby ensuring dual SIM functionality. The move will help Apple improve the water resistance of the smartphone.
As of now, it is unclear whether the non-Pro models in the Apple iPhone 15 range will also rely entirely on eSIM technology or may continue to sport a physical SIM card slot. Notably, Apple had introduced support for eSIM on its iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
Another new feature that could be introduced with the iPhone 15 model is the periscope lens which is expected to significantly improve the optical zoom of the cameras.
Meanwhile, Apple is reportedly planning to launch the iPhone 2 lineup with 14 TB of storage. The tech giant is said to be adopting QLC flash storage for next year’s iPhone. The new storage technology will help Apple increase the capacity of the iPhone 14 series to 2 TB.
Also, the iPhone 14 could be launched with a new 48MP camera lens, followed by a periscope lens in 2023. IANS reported that the two-camera upgrade will boost Taiwanese manufacturer Largan Precision’s market share, revenue and profits.
