New Delhi: Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max models, which are lined up for 2023 launch, are reported to ditch the physical SIM card slot, as the tech giant could only offer support for eSIM in the upcoming range of its smartphones.
The smartphones are expected to provide support for two eSIM cards, ensuring dual SIM functionality. The move will help Apple in improving the water-resistance of the smartphone.
As of now, it’s unclear if the non-Pro models in Apple iPhone 15 range will also sport eSIM technology or might continue with physical SIM card slots. Notably, Apple had introduced support for eSIM on its iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max.
Another new feature that could be introduced with the iPhone 15 model is a periscope lens that is expected to significantly improve the optical zoom of cameras.
Meanwhile, Apple is reportedly planning to launch iPhone 14 lineup with up to 2 TB of storage. The tech giant is said to be adopting the QLC flash storage for next gen iPhone. The newer storage technology will help Apple increase the capacity of the iPhone 14 series to 2 TB.
Moreover, the iPhone 14 could be launched with a new 48MP camera lens, followed by a periscope lens in 2023. Also, the two camera upgrades will boost Taiwanese manufacturer Largan Precision’s market share, revenue, and profit.
