iOS 12 Beta 5 Hints at Upcoming Support for Dual-SIMs

Posted August 1, 2018 at 3:19am by iClarified
References found in iOS 12 beta 5 hint at upcoming support for dual-SIMs, reports Guilherme Rambo for 9to5Mac.

A component of the system responsible for the generation of diagnostic reports includes new references to “second SIM status” and a “second SIM tray status”. Another component references a “dual sim device”. Those references are clearly an indication that iOS is being updated to run in a future device with support for two SIM cards, as seen in the screenshot below. The mention of a “second sim tray” indicates it would in fact have two physical SIM cards instead of a regular one and an e-SIM as the second.

Additionally, Rambo has found a pluralized string for "SIM card locked" in the new beta.


Earlier this year it was reported that the new 6.1-inch LCD iPhone and the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone would support DSDS (Dual SIM Dual Standby). The second generation iPhone X is not expected to support DSDS.

Apple announced a record fiscal third quarter today during which it sold 41.3 million iPhones. The company is expected to unveil its new lineup of smartphones in September. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.
