Apple introduced eSIM support on the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max, and now a new report suggests that at least one iPhone 14 model may lack a physical nano-SIM card tray.

According to GlobalData analyst Emma Mohr-McClune, Apple will not switch to eSIM-only iPhones in 2022. Instead, she believes Apple will release an eSIM-only iPhone 14, according to MacRumors.

It is also stated that two eSIM cards will be supported, ensuring dual SIM functionality. The removal of the SIM card slot may improve water resistance even more.

Furthermore, only the most expensive iPhone 14 models will include Apple’s ProMotion display technology.

In September 2021, Apple debuted ProMotion on the iPhone with the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. ProMotion enables the display to refresh at up to 120Hz for smoother appearing content and scrolling.

This year, Apple is expected to release four iPhone 14 models, two 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch standard models, and two 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Pro models.
