In addition, all iPhone 13 physical cards released last September are capable of managing two eSIMs.
At the moment, it’s hard to be sure that Apple will make the leap next year. The final prototypes have not yet been established, and could possibly change a little over nine months after launch. However, whether in 2022 or next year, the end of the physical SIM card is imminent.
