iPhone 14 could take another step towards portless design, ditching the mobile staple

We’ve been hearing for a while that eSIMs (embedded SIMs) may soon replace physical SIM cards, and now it sounds a lot like the iPhone 14 could be the phone that starts this transition, as some versions will be sold without a removable SIM card.

This according to Wall Street Journal (opens in new tab), and means that a subset of the 2022 iPhone family will potentially be dependent on just one eSIM. Instead of taking a tray out of the side of the phone and inserting a physical SIM card, an eSIM is a digital SIM built into the phone and cannot be removed; therefore, when changing carriers/networks, a new number is just programmed into it, instead of having to insert a physical card.
