When skimming the evolution of the SIM card, you likely noticed that they’ve become much smaller. But prior to the launch of the iPhone 4 in 2010, we really only had one SIM card size. Introduced in ‘96, it was the standard used in every phone and it made the GSM folks happy. Essentially, it was your entire phone on a card. It made things simple. If you wanted a new phone, all you’d need to do was take that SIM out, pop it into any phone and suddenly your phone number would be transferred to the new device. For over a decade, this was the standard, which made switching phones a breeze. Now? Not so much.
Like the Apple company. Wanting to save precious room for its newest generation of smartphones, Apple switched from using the standard Mini-SIM to the Micro-SIM once the iPhone 4 hit shelves.
Surprisingly, the Micro-SIM wasn’t some new flashy SIM developed for the latest iPhone. Believe it or not, it was first introduced in 2003.
Back then, its purpose was clear: if a device was too small to fit a mini-SIM, you’d have to use the micro-SIM. In addition, the micro-SIM was designed for backward compatibility, meaning it can work with input generated by an older version of the SIM (such as the Mini-SIM).
In addition, despite its smaller size, the micro’s performance wasn’t impacted at all, as chip’s contact area remained the same. It turned out to be scaled down – the card only needed its excess plastic to be cut from it.
When Apple released the iPhone 4 with the micro-SIM, it became the standard for most smartphones. Samsung, Nokia, and HTC are just a few of the manufacturers that adopted the new Micro-SIM. During this time, several upgrading to the iPhone 4 opted to use an adapter to get their SIM cards cut down to Micro’s, as well.
If you thought Apple was done using smaller SIM cards, think again. Perhaps Apple was peeved they had to use a SIM card from 2003 on the shiny new iPhone 4. Maybe they just wanted to stay ahead of the curve and throw competitors off their trail.
In any case, the launch of the iPhone 5 prompted the public to realize there was a new SIM in town: the Nano-SIM. This choice to go small made life pretty difficult for users. Anyone upgrading to an iPhone 5 or switching from Android now had to get a new SIM card or an adapter.
Fortunately, most smartphones released since 2014 (both iOS and Android) now support Nano SIM card technology as the standard. Still, it’s sad to see a card that small take over, as it was always much easier changing phones with the Standard SIM compared to the Nano.
How To Replace SIM Cards?
Inserting or removing a SIM card is an easy process once you determine where it is stored on your phone. Depending on the type of phone, it could be placed behind the battery. In that case, you will have to open the back panel. For other phones, the SIM cards can be found on the side of the phone.
Removing the SIM card is simple if you have the right tool. Depending on what kind of phone you have, you can easily pop it out of the slot with a paperclip or the edge of something like a credit card. There are some SIM cards that are in easier spots that can slide out with the tip of your finger.
Is installing the SIM card hard?
Not at all, it takes about ten seconds. Take a look at this example of someone placing a SIM card in a phone.
