Apple is not ready to release the iPhone with two SIM-cards for the whole world.
In 2018 Apple will release not three, but four new smartphones. They are: 5.8-inch iPhone 11 and 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Plus OLED displays, and two models are available 6.1-inch iPhone 9: with one and two slots for SIM-cards. In this version of the smartphone with two SIM cards will be sold exclusively in China.
About plans of Apple to release iPhone 9 with two SIM-cards in China alone, said sources of resource Economic Daily News. According to them, Apple have been planning to release a dual-SIM smartphone for China.
In China a huge demand for smartphones with two SIM-cards. Because of the fact that no iPhone model has no support of two “simok” and many Chinese prefer to buy devices from other manufacturers. Releasing a relatively inexpensive iPhone 9 with two slots for SIM cards Apple will be able to significantly strengthen its market position in China.
If the information source is confirmed, then, unfortunately for many fans of Apple, purchase the iPhone 9 with two SIM-cards will not work outside China. Moreover, most probably, the slot for the second SIM card will be “locked” by the Chinese Telecom operators.
