Apple patents an iPhone with eSIM and dual SIM
As Apple noted in its patent, devices with dual SIM and eSIM are particularly popular in China and other up-and-coming developing and emerging countries, reported Patentlyapple.
Apple’s invention describes devices and the associated methods for operating a dual standby user terminal (DSE) with two users, which is equipped with a first and a second SIM card.
The first SIM is used for communication with a cellular network, while the second SIM is used for prioritization. According to the patent, each SIM card can contain information such as personalized information that is important for a user or device and information that is not specific to the user or device.
eSims at Apple already have some tradition
Three years ago, Apple presented a dual SIM, eSIM and more at its iPhone event. So far, no iPhone with a physical dual SIM has appeared in Europe or Germany, although such a model has received various requests from consumers.
