So let's say you're really excited to get a new iPhone 5, but unlike the average buyer, you're getting an unlocked one straight from Apple, and you're champing at the bit to bring it to your carrier. Problem: your current micro-SIM won't fit. What to do?! Well you can hack your normal SIM down to size, if you're…
The latest supposedly leaked iPhone 5 part is a tray for a nano-Sim card. We're skeptical about the authenticity of the images from Nowhereelse.fr, but there's plenty of reason to believe that Apple will use an even tinier SIM on its next-gen iPhone. Who cares? It turns out a little SIM could be a big deal.
Data, reception, battery, screen, CPU, weight, size. These are the cellphone specs I'm concerned. Smaller SIM cards? Not so much. But Giesecke & Devrient, one of the original SIM manufactuers, thinks we need a nano-SIM that's 30 percent smaller. Great?
