The changes that Apple has made in the structure of the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max prevent the addition of a physical SIM card slot.
Last year, Apple released models of the iPhone 14 produced for the US market without a physical SIM card slot, so that US users could switch to an electronic SIM card to use communication services. This technology is active in many countries of the world; But it has not entered Iran yet.
The whistleblowers said that this year iPhone 15 may be released in the French market in addition to the American market without a physical SIM card slot; However, reviews show that the iPhone 15 does not have a SIM card slot only in America.
One of the analysts in the X social network says that Apple has made changes to the internal structure of the iPhone 15 Pro so that users cannot add a SIM card slot to the phone. Last year, some YouTubers added a SIM card slot to the American iPhone 14 model. The mentioned change is only applied to iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models.
By modifying the structure of the iPhone 15 and preventing the phone from being modified, Apple seems to have put a special emphasis on the use of eSIM. It is not unlikely that in 2024 iPhones, we will see the release of models without a SIM card in more countries. Some whistleblowers say that Apple is looking to remove all ports from the iPhone in the coming years.
Apple's new generation iPhones have experienced significant generational changes and the Pro and Pro Max models now have a titanium frame. Despite this, the price of the iPhone has not changed in the new generation. The whistleblowers claimed that the price of iPhone 15 increased.
