The iPhone 15 could ship with an eSIM in countries outside the US

Apple opted to remove the physical SIM card tray from all iPhone 14 models sold in the US last September, with the phones instead using an eSIM (embedded SIM), which is essentially a digital – and therefore more secure – version of a SIM card. 

Now it looks Apple is preparing to move to eSIM in countries outside the US for the iPhone 15, with French website MacGeneration (opens in new tab) reporting that eSIMs could be coming to the next generation of Apple’s best iPhones in France.
