Apple iPhone 14 Won’t Have A Sim Tray In The United States

The new iPhone 14 line will not ship with physical SIM trays only in the US. The new iPhone 14 lineup will not ship with physical SIM trays. 

However, they can use two eSIMs simultaneously and store more data. Is this a major problem? Is it stupid and hostile to the users?

Let's start by briefly reiterating eSIMs. They are SIM cards, but they are electronic and not physical. 

This means that your phone can now be provisioned remotely. There is no need to go to a store to purchase a physical SIM. 

eSIM support is available on most major US carriers and worldwide. 

iPhones have supported it since 2018, and you can use two SIMs simultaneously.

Up to the iPhone 13, there was only one eSIM and one physical SIM. The iPhone 13 family now allows you to use two eSIMs simultaneously.

The absence of a SIM tray on major US networks such as AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile won't affect you too much. 

You can get an eSIM from Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile, even if your phone is switched or you change carriers. 

If you don't have an eSIM or are planning to switch, the iPhone 14 should not be purchased immediately. This could be the moment that smaller carriers will need to embrace eSIMs.
