At a closely watched press event, Apple revealed
That it will ditch the physical SIM card and tray in its new iPhone 14 lineup in the US.
Apple is adopting a digital alternative known as eSIM.
The SIM card is a unique identifier on each cell phone that will be used for texting and calling
An eSIM refers to a SIM or a card that is hidden hardwired into the phone itself.
Apple first introduced eSIM support in iPhones in 2018.
Apple is now using e-SIM in iPhone 14 instead of physical SIM cards
The Federal Communications Commission states that eSIMs "carry security benefits."
