Apple Proposes New SIM Card Standard
Apple has submitted a proposal to the European Telecoms Standards Body (ETSI) that would define a SIM card that's smaller even than the microSIM it uses in the iPhone 4 and iPad. Apple proposed the smaller SIM card standard so it can further reduce the size of SIM cards needed in its devices and allow for thinner future products. Apple has the backing of network partner Orange in France, which believes Apple is taking the correct route by going through a standards body to define the new SIM card's dimensions. An Orange representative said that devices with the new SIM cards could hit the market as soon as next year. The microSIM in the Apple iPhone 4 isn't compatible with the standard SIM cards used in most GSM phones, meaning they aren't easily swapped between devices.

I wonder how many normal sized phones have developed anorexia trying to be as thin as the iPhone.....this promotes a poor body image! 🤣
Apple hates sim standard
LEAVE THE SIM CARD ALONE
Apple will not be developing a phone so small that the standard sim cannot fit.
If they wanted to they could have made enough space on the iPhone 4, and for sure could have made space on the iPad.
Their reason for trying to make a new standard is just selfishness on their part.
The only reason Apple likes the micro-SIM is because they want the SIM to be incompatible with other phones so that people are 'locked in' t...
