Apple iPhone 15 Pro wanted to release without a SIM card slot. Apple announced its iPhone 13 lineup in September September, as well as its iPhone 14, is still months away from launching; however, rumors about an iPhone 15 have already started appearing on the web and the most recent one saying Apple will eliminate its physical SIM card slot starting when it launches the iPhone 15 series in 2023.
According to Brazilian newspaper Blog Do iPhone, 2023’s Pro models (tentatively named iPhone 15 Pro) will be void of physical SIM card slots and depend entirely on eSIM technology to connect. The publication also states that the iPhones will have dual eSIM support, allowing users to use two lines simultaneously.

It’s not clear whether the models that aren’t Pro depends on eSIM technology or remain with physical SIM slot cards. Apple’s plans to eliminate its SIM card slot aren’t surprising, considering that the tech giant is expected to be moving towards an entirely portless iPhone with no SIM card slot.
Eliminating the SIM card slot appears to be the initial move in this direction. But, even if Apple decides to launch an iPhone with no SIM card slot, it may be able to see it offers a version that has a physical SIM slot in areas where eSIM isn’t available. However, 2023 is a long way to wait, and it’s best to await the information to be confirmed by credible industry sources before taking it to be the final.
