We knew that the iPhone 5 would feature a new Nano SIM and considering the launch event is rumored to be almost one week away, we had to start seeing signs of these SIM cards appearing online soon. Today is that day, and as you can see in the photos on this page, the new iPhone 5 Nano SIM has landed at T-Mobile.
The source points to the SIMs arriving at a carrier in Germany, and while we know these are most likely the SIMs that will work in the iPhone 5, it is also worth pointing out that these cards are also supported by even more smartphones that are about to release.
The message that came with the Nano SIM package gave vague instructions, and also explained that more details on how to proceed would be coming in the near future. This is the website where we found the photos, which also has the full message found with the new SIM cards, so feel free to take a look although you will need to translate the article as it’s in German. We have added a quick translation below and you will quickly see that this is machine translated, so it won’t be perfect.
We have spoken about an adapter for the new connector port on the iPhone 5 in the past, and while we haven’t seen any images (other than renders) of that device, today we did manage to get the first photo of a nano-sim adapter for iPhone 5. You can see a photo of this adapter below, and also see the source here, which explains in more detail about the said part. The page is in Czech although we have already put it through Google translator, so feel free to take a look and let us know what you think of the new nano-SIMS and also the adapter.
Are you looking forward to picking up an iPhone 5, or are you waiting to see the full specs before deciding? You can also see our earlier article from today, which takes a look at innovation with the iPhone 5 and iOS 6. We’d love to hear from our readers about what you think would be innovative for the next iPhone, and are there certain features that would be enough for you to upgrade? It might be worth just using iOS 6 for a few weeks first, considering this delivers well over 200 new features alone.
