Hey all,

I have taken the plunge and jumped from my Note 9 to an iPhone Max to try out.

In regards to the Dual sim, I understand the Australian Model uses an eSim, which no one here supports.

I have taken a torch and looked inside the port, it does have the support pins for 2 sim cards.
Whats the likely-hood if I purchase myself one of these bad boys https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Replace...hash=item214893e443:m:mEvG208oIUp2r8GjLSBtUew

That it could possible work with both sims?

Thanks again you big apple boys.
Much love - XOXO JoeyBGoodPLS

Teardowns of the XS show only one set of SIM contacts.

Please stop wasting time. If it supported two physical SIMs, don’t you think Apple would have included the SIM tray?

Yea but on the max? could you link me to the ones you have seen?

Because illuminating the sim socket shows 2 contact sets. 1 on either side.

The phone doesn’t support two physical SIM cards.
Yea but if i get a double sim card tray, do you think it would be a physical limitation, or software limitation on apples side?

It would be a good experiment if you can physically test it but let us know if you can prove it with the dual sim tray

I’m very interested in this as I have been unable to find an eSim off contract.
