We have recently been hearing rumors about Apple offering iPhone models that are only compatible with eSIM, without the physical SIM card slot.

However, years before this technology even existed, Steve Jobs wished that the first iPhone didn’t have a SIM card slot.

According to Fadell, during the early development of the iPhone, Steve Jobs was against the idea of having a SIM card slot in the device due to his design preferences.

In the words of the “father of the iPod,” Jobs told the engineers and designers working on the iPhone that “we don’t want another hole in it.”.

Apple’s co-founder used Verizon as an example to claim that an iPhone without a SIM card slot would be possible since the carrier was known for its CDMA network instead of GSM.

Once again, Tony Fadell also told stories about the development of the iPod.

Fadell also told about how former Google CEO Eric Schmidt made Jobs believe that web apps were the right choice for the iPhone.

Introduced in 2007 by Steve Jobs, iPhone is Apple's flagship iOS device and easily its most popular product around the world
