    New iphones - dual sim

    Well the Iphone XS.

    Interesting development. First wireless charging, now dual sim.

    Maybe next thing will be USB-C ports.

    Interesting....

    Edit: seems dual sim is via e-sim for one of the sims (apart from China, where they will have physical dual sim).

    Physical Dual Sim in China, HK, Macau - for regulatory purposes.

    USB-C might happen sooner than we thought?

    Read this the other day.

    iPad Pro will feature Face ID and switch from the Lightning port to USB-C for the first time thats a new detail and ship with the new 18W USB-C charger weve seen floating around iPhone will retain 5W charging and Lightning ports

    Wow

    They are really just becoming a standard phone.

    do iPhones finally have usable NFC? In the past they had an NFC function, but it couldn't be used.

    Looks like only the XS Max will have the physical dual sims, the smaller XS will use e-Sim

    iphones have apple pay, which is my primary reason for wanting NFC (or google pay on android). But you are right that there are other valid uses of NFC that still dont work on iphone because Apple have decided to cripple it.

    Woopteedoo, my android phone has dual sim that can also use SD card and USB on the go for less than a quarter of the price. I can also use both bluetooth and regular earphones. No thanks Apple
