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.

Apple Could Be Considering Giving In To Indian Government’s Demands

6.1-inch LCD iPhone Might Only Be Released In October

When Apple launched the iPhone X last year and there were rumors that the handset could be released later than the other models, it sort of made sense.

Qualcomm Believes Future iPhones Will No Longer Use Their Modems

Due to the ongoing legal dispute between Apple and Qualcomm, it’s not surprising that Apple would want to stop giving Qualcomm as much business as they can.
