If you buy your iPhone 14 outside the United States, you will still have a physical SIM tray.

Apple recently launched its iPhone 14 lineup globally with the phones going on sale from September 16 and the iPhone 14 Plus from October 7. While the base iPhone 14 lineup saw minor upgrades over last year’s iPhone 13, the iPhone 14 Pro models came out with a slew of features. But if you buy these phones in the US, where the iPhone starts at $799 (Rs 63,600) before tax compared to Rs 79,900 in India and the iPhone Pro starts at $999 (Rs 79,600) before tax compared to Rs 1.29,900 in India, then you might find both have a surprising feature. Both of these phones are sold without any physical SIM tray in the United States.

Instead of using a physical SIM card, you will need to authenticate your carrier using only an eSIM. An eSIM is a programmable SIM card that installs directly into the device, making the physical SIM card superfluous. The eSIM can be programmed to authenticate support operators. Although the technology is not new, Apple itself has supported eSIMs since 2018, this is the first time that Apple has completely avoided the physical SIM tray in its phone. However, if you buy your iPhone 14 outside the United States, you will still have a physical SIM tray. By using the eSIM, you can use two numbers at once on your iPhone with a total of eight eSIMs installed at once.
