As far as rumors are concerned, Apple will be announcing its new iPhone on September 12. Moreover it is expected that the company will begin shipping the new iPhone merely nine days later, in the US, on September 21. While we can all have our doubts regarding the alleged release dates, prior to impending announcement of next generation iPhone the network carriers have already started receiving nano SIM cards that will work with Apple’s upcoming iPhone.
Whenever we are nearing the release of a new Apple product, we are always swamped with countless rumors regarding the upcoming device. This tradition continued as we approached closer to the announcement of the new Apple iPhone. From what we have heard up till now, the next generation iPhone will employ the use of a nano SIM. This report is in lieu with such rumors, meaning that carriers are indeed gearing up for the release of a new iPhone in the not so distant future.
T-Mobile nano SIM cards can be seen in the picture above, originally posted online by iPhone-Ticker.de. The delivery of these new nano SIM cards also came bearing instructions for the carrier employees, instructions which read:
Please find enclosed a new generation of SIM cards for the latest generation of smartphones that come in the near future on the market. Sort your SIM card please first not in their cards in hand and give it not out to customers. We will inform you shortly about how to proceed.
It is the usage of technologies such as the nano SIM and a smaller 9 pin dock connector which will give next generation iPhone its much hyped about thinner profile. We expect the new Apple iPhone to be announced on September 12. If not then, well its only a matter of weeks now as Apple’s traditional release cycle for new products is about to come full circle anyway.
