You have 20/20 vision if you can spot the top secret hidden difference between Apple’s UK and US iPhone 15 models

EAGLE-EYED Apple fans have spotted a very small difference between the iPhone 15 sold in the US and the UK.

Most people wouldn’t notice the smallest detail.

However, there is a big difference between the iPhone 15 devices you can buy in the US and those available in the UK and the rest of the world.

That’s because the US versions of the iPhone 15 phones only have eSIM.

Apple decided to do away with the physical SIM card last year with the iPhone 14, meaning there is no longer a department for it.

But in the UK and everywhere else in the world the SIM card tray still exists.

People have admired Apple’s extreme attention to detail, displaying on its website the correct version of each iPhone relevant to the country you are in.

“Apple’s attention to detail is incredible,” wrote one user on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Just a small hole. Who would have cared? But they did.”

If you still can’t see it, scroll down to see a photo with the SIM tray circled. You may need to zoom in and zoom in on the image since it is so well hidden.

Most read in “Phones and Gadgets.”

There were rumors that Apple would only offer the iPhone 15 eSIM in all countries this year.

But it didn’t become a reality.

Proponents of the technology say it is safer and more convenient because you can have two phone numbers on one device.

However, some US users say they lack choice because they cannot get as many eSIM-compatible data plans when traveling abroad.
