Goodbye, SIM cards
A completely unforeseen development for the American market was also brought about by the release of the new iPhones, and that was the elimination of the specialized physical SIM slot from the Cupertino company’s new cellphones.
No longer actual SIM cards
Apple has started a trend that will inevitably impact all smartphone manufacturers. At least in the U.S. market, the new iPhone 14 won’t actually feature a physical SIM slot.
There will be no more 8.3 billion SIM cards
The Ericsson Mobility Report, which predicts the eradication of the 8.3 billion Sims now in use, confirms the trend. These numbers just include Sims that are now slated for cellphones; if we included those installed in tablets, vehicles, portable routers, and other types of gadgets as well, the total would be significantly greater.
What are eSIM’s benefits?
In other ways, number portability benefits from doing away with physical numbers are greater. Additionally, the entirety of the security-related world needs to be taken into account.
There are many more eSims in use
Samsung is the second giant to embrace virtual at the expense of physical, following in the footsteps of iPhones (which are already Dual Sim with a first physical Sim and second eSim). The value of the eSim market as a whole, up from $7.3 billion last year, could reach $17.5 billion by 2030, according to a report by Think Thank Research.
