Presented as being designed to slip into the SIM card slot of the iPhone 5, this element seems in turn confirm that the next iPhone indeed adopt this new standard imposed by Apple.
June was the month when Apple’s Nano SIM proposal was picked up as in industry standard by European Telecommunications Standards Institute.
It has also been claimed by the site that large orders for Nano Sims were given by all major telecommunication companies in France ahead of the expected release on September 21. These images were given by a source in China to NowhereElse.fr. Apple is said to make efforts for Nano SIM as there is less space in the body of the iPhone and extra room is needed for more components.
The site also provided images which show a home button which is smaller than the ones seen in previous leaks. Check it out.
Till now, it was going to be a normal Micro SIM tray on the next-generation iPhone. However, these leaks seem to be changing minds of the people, and it’s a possibility that it could now arrive with a tray which is compatible with a Nano SIM card, which is 40 percent smaller than a regular SIM.
