Some iPhone 14 may cancel the SIM card slot

GlobalData analyst Emma Mohr-McClune said that the upcoming iPhone 14 may do away with the SIM port.

According to "WSJ", after the SIM card slot is cancelled, the eSIM service that does not require a physical card will replace the original function. eSIM relies on a fixed chip built into the phone, which is more space-efficient than a physical SIM card.

Compared with physical SIM cards, eSIM is more convenient for dual-card users to switch between two phone numbers, and it also makes it easier to change operators. At the same time, when operators or device manufacturers discover security vulnerabilities, they can use eSIM to quickly push security updates to a large number of users at the same time.

However, if the user needs to switch frequently between different phones, it may still be faster to use a physical SIM than to transfer the eSIM back and forth.

In fact, Apple has added eSIM to the iPhone XS since 2018, and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, Fold, and some Verizon phones now also have eSIM capabilities.

Of course, considering the differences in regional operators, it is expected that there will still be a physical dual-card version to choose from. (WSJ & 9to5mac)

Every time a "big factory employee" is attracted, the city is more likely to become a city where a technology company branch is stationed in the future, or a place to build a factory.

Every time an office moves in, five new jobs are created for each "big factory employee" as they increase demand for healthcare, education and other services.

One of the most successful cities is Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. Its "Tulsa Remote" project has attracted 1,360 new residents in 2021, and by 2022 the number is estimated to reach 2,400.

Among competing cities, the highest willingness to offer relocated employees $12,000 in cash, plus gym memberships, childcare and offices.

Still, those employees who moved said the cash allowance was good, but it was the city itself that really got them moving.

Mathew, an IBM product manager who moved to Tulsa in 2020, is now the landlord of four local apartments, the vice president of the neighborhood association, and has started new applications as a startup:
