Apple’s Nano-SIM Proposal

Posted Mar 27, 2012

Apple is competing with Nokia to make their nano-SIM card the industry standard. The two filed competing proposals with the ETSI for the fourth form factor (4FF) UICC nano-SIM. The micro-SIM was popularized by the iPhone and they were able to save some extra millimeters inside of the phone chassis to fit more circuitry and more battery capacity. Above is a photo of Apple’s proposal as collected by The Verge.
