The iPhone 15 Pro will probably not have a SIM card slot
According to the Brazilian website Blog do iPhone, the iPhone 15 Pro models may not have the physical convenience of a SIM card. Most likely, the flagship iPhone 15 models will be able to support two eSIMs, and subsequently allow Apple to remove the SIM card slot from the body of the device. In other words, this feature allows users to have two communication services electronically on the iPhone.
However, it should not be overlooked that there are almost two years left until the unveiling of the iPhone 15 family of phones, and at this point, the accuracy of the published reports can not be confirmed or denied. In addition, the website does not constitute a reliable source for disclosing Apple products. However, even if the rumors are true, iPhone 15 Pro models may still have the physical SIM card slot in countries that do not have access to eSIM service.
Currently, the iPhone 13 family is IP68 certified for water resistance, and the Apple Support website states that the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini have been tested for water and dust spraying in the laboratory and IEC 60529 at a maximum depth of 6 meters 30 minutes. .
Not to mention that Apple can increase this resistance by removing the SIM card slot and subsequently be able to get IP69 certification for its smartphones. In addition, it is rumored that Apple will soon launch at least one iPhone model without a port and Lightning connector, and the removal of the SIM card slot will be another step towards a fully integrated design.
