The new iPhone uses a the New Nano Sim card, a even smaller sim compared to the MicroSim that was used on the iPhone 4 & 4S. The 5 x 12mm MicroSim which seemed small compared to the 25 x 15mm Sim card is going out of fashion as well with the 12.3 x 8.8mm Nano Sim, telco’s are going to be flooded with request for the new sim. Why?
When the MicroSim was launched, users simply cut their existing Sim’s to work. The new Nano Sim is slightly thinned as well measuring 0.67mm compared to 0.76mm.
Maxis has announced that the Nano Sim will be available from the 24th of September onwards for RM 25 at Maxis Centres in KLCC, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail, Sunway Pyramid, The Gardens Mall, Penang’s Queensbay Mall and Johor Bharu’s Danga Bay.
