Using two SIMs on an iPhone has become a dream for a while now and when Apple truly desires to tap into the Indian and Chinese market they should make that can true. Some may very well be enroute, just by a whole new patent that emerged from China.
Documents that had been filed with China’s State Ip Office detail a dual Sim feature a great iPhone. It might allow it to needlessly store two contact numbers and it was submitted in March 2016, then published in September this season. The inventor indexed by the documents is Li Su, main architect for cellular software at Apple. For the time being the 2009 week, Apple also got a similar dual SIM patent in USA, so the situation is lining up.
Of course, a dual SIM version of the iPhone implies the product boosts in thickness, yet not necessarily should the eSIM technology is adopted. Instead of switching SIMs, it is possible to reprogram only one SIM many different networks using a software update. Such eSIMS already are being exercised on the 9.7 inch iPad Pro launched this year.
While this may be big in India or China, Apple is incredibly tied to carriers in Western Europe, Japan or USA, where their relationship with operators makes perfect. A dual SIM iPhone would basically mean carriers sell one less phone each model is moved. Obviously, a patent doesn’t mean a product is originating, but nevertheless there’s hope.
