For those who travel, having a phone that supports dual SIM is a great idea because not only does this mean one less device to bring around, but it also means that they can still receive messages and calls on their other number while using their new SIM card. Unfortunately this is something that iPhone users have had to live without for the past decade or so.

However the good news is that could change soon. According to the latest iOS 12 beta, the folks at 9to5Mac have discovered that a dual SIM iPhone could be in the works. This is thanks to code string which references “second SIM status” and “second SIM tray status”, all of which has led to speculation that a dual SIM iPhone could be in development.

Interestingly enough this is actually not the first time we’ve heard rumors of a dual SIM iPhone, and this latest reference seems to suggest that this could be coming soon. It is unclear when this could happen, but hopefully it will be with 2018’s iPhones. So far there have not been many mentions of a dual SIM iPhone, but as the reference suggests, it could be coming soon.

Either way we’ll find out soon enough as Apple is expected to officially announce their new iPhones come September, so check back with us then for more updates.
