Steve Jobs didn’t want a SIM card in the original iPhone
Apple introduced the first dual-SIM iPhone in 2018 when the iPhone XS generation added eSIM support in addition to a regular nano-SIM. The feature has been available on every iPhone Apple launched since then, even the cheaper iPhone SE. The technology paves the way for iPhones that can work without a physical SIM card. Several reports this year claimed that Apple might soon start selling eSIM-only iPhones, although nothing has been confirmed by Apple or its carrier partners.
But it turns out that Steve Jobs wanted to make the original iPhone without a SIM card slot more than 15 years ago. Apple engineers had to convince him that the technology wasn’t feasible at the time.
