Apple May Not Launch Dual-SIM iPhone Model in India: Report
Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone model next month, and many rumors and even iOS 12 codes have suggested that the company is planning to introduce dual SIM functionality in some types. According to various leaks in the past few months, Apple is expected to launch three standard iPhone models – a 6.1-inch LCD version, as well as 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLDD models. It is now being reported that the facility allowing two SIM cards can be limited to only one type, and that too in the same market. Separately, Apple’s latest iOS 12 beta has indicated as a symbolic representation of Apple’s broad rumored ‘iPhone X Plus’. Apart from this, in another report, Apple is unlikely to include the power-to-headphone jack converter in the 2018 iPhone model.
Last month, references to “second SIM status” and “second SIM tray status” were seen in the list of new features in the iOS 12 Developer Beta 5. A new version called “dual sim device” was found to develop a dual sim iPhone model. Earlier it was told that Apple is considering launching a Dual SIM card option for this year’s big iPhone model, which can start with the 6.5-inch display. Now, according to a report in Taiwan’s United Daily News, the dual SIM capacity will be limited to 6.1-inch LCD iPhones, which is also expected to be the cheapest version.
The report says that the Dual SIM iPhone version will be launched exclusively in China, which means that we should not expect to be launched in India soon. However, since a large number of Android smartphone vendors are already offering dual sim support on their flagship in markets like India and China, we can expect it to be launched at a later date. In particular, rumors have not been officially confirmed by Apple and they should be taken with a pinch of salt.
It is worth noting that the report cited sources with supplier Foxconn, claiming that there are currently four different “codes” in the iPhone model in production. This fourth code will probably be for Dual SIM 6.1-inch iPhone.
Meanwhile, as seen by iOS developer Gillerme Rambo, this year’s G5 of the iOS 12 beta suggests that the Apple is planning to launch a model called ‘iPhone X Plus’, which is a bigger in the 2017 iPhone X Version appears. He posted the glyph, the iPhone X Plus and a new iPad Pro, which he found on Twitter inside the latest iOS 12 beta passbook development framework. Glyph looks longer and comes with a bigger footing than the iPhone X, it estimates that Apple will launch a larger version of the iPhone X which keeps the Face ID.
