Does iPhone 14 have a physical SIM chip in Brazil?

Does iPhone 14 have a physical SIM chip in Brazil?

During the iPhone 14 launch event held yesterday (7), a feature of the new cell phones drew attention: in the United States, the device will no longer have a tray for the physical SIM chip, with exclusive use of the “virtual chip” eSIM. However, the change will not be passed on to most other countries, including Brazil — at least for now.

According to the brand’s official website in Brazil, all four models in the line — iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max — will continue to support Dual SIM via a nano SIM and an eSIM, but micro SIM cards are not supported. In addition, the user can also choose to use two eSIM numbers, as was already the case with the iPhone 13.

Therefore, specification quite different from what is listed on the brand’s website in the United States. There, the company specifies that iPhones “do not support physical SIM cards” of any kind.

Physical chips should lose space in the future

Even though they can still be used in new iPhones in Brazil and other countries, the physical chips should be retired in a few years. Apple’s move can be considered as a clear intention to make the device less and less dependent on openings in its construction.

A similar movement was noticed when the brand removed the P2 ports for headphones on its cell phones – however, with much more controversy at the time. Over the next few years, other companies began to make similar decisions regarding their flagships, and today the measure extends to several intermediate models.

Currently, the iPhone 14 in the United States is the only device on the planet to dispense with support for physical SIM cards. However, several models already offer the technology as an option, including some sold in Brazil.

  • How to create a number with eSIM?
  • Which operators support eSIM in Brazil?

The adoption of eSIM represents some advantages for cell phone brands, such as the possibility of opening space in the internal structure of the devices and the presence of one less “hole” for water and dust to enter. With this, companies can install other important parts, or even increase the device’s battery in some cases, in addition to ensuring resistance against accidents more efficiently.

In addition, eSIM brings some facilities to the consumer, especially when configuring the operator number. In these cases, the record can be registered using a QR Code or other similar codes, without the need to use a utensil to open the tray, for example. Use of the virtual chip also guarantees greater security, preventing your number from falling into the wrong hands if your cell phone is stolen or stolen.
