Apple Patents a New SIM Card Tray Design
The United States Patent and Trademark office has recently granted Apple’s rights for the patent called “Systems and methods for ejecting removable modules from electronic devices". Or, in other words - for a new SIM card tray design. According to the Apple’s application, such a design will allow to retain and eject the SIM card using magnetic means instead of mechanical that are said to be inconvenient.
Such an ejector mechanism often takes up valuable real estate within the housing of the device. Moreover, a portion of such an ejector mechanism often requires a user to interact with the ejector mechanism through an opening in the housing that may allow debris to enter the housing and impair the function of the device.
Apple tries to be innovative and patents another technology that can be successfully used in would-be devices.
