We’re about a month away before Apple holds its annual September iPhone event and we pretty much know just about everything to expect. However, there is one under-the-radar feature that hasn’t been talked about, and that’s inclusion of dual-SIM. Just don’t expect it to be in the U.S.
According to a new report from Economic Daily News, sources within Foxconn have suggested that the dual-SIM feature will only be included in the 6.1-inch low-cost iPhone model with the LCD display that is “a unique model for China.”
Apple’s manufacturing partners, including Foxconn, have already begun production on the new iPhones, which may be the reason why more information about the phones is starting to disseminate. The report states that the dual-SIM feature is going to be specific to China because the feature is incredibly popular there and Apple wants to stay competitive with the myriad of Android devices that support with the feature.
It’s understandable why dual-SIM support will make it to China, but it’s a shame it won’t be coming to the states. The feature isn’t that popular here but it’s always great to receive new features that prove to be useful.
