Carriers Reportedly Testing Nano-SIMs for Apple Ahead of Next-Generation iPhone Launch
Multiple carrier sources have exclusively told BGR that Apple is supplying nano-SIM adapters so its carrier partners can test how nano-SIMs work on their networks in standard test devices before they are widely deployed when the new iPhone is introduced. This includes AT&T.
