Can you swap SIM Card slot on iPhone Xr

So as far as I know Xr uses modular SIM Card, which makes me wonder whether or not it will soon be possible to swap singular SIM Card slot to Chinese Dual SIM one?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I haven’t seen any detailed tear down of the sim slot yet. They could be one and the same, you could actually swap just the SIM tray to insert 2nd SIM and dual physical SIM only disabled by software.

Or it could be that global model has a dual layer SIM slot with one side blanked out, not really sure which is which.

The eSIM is integrated in the Single Sim Card Reader.

I have exchanged/replaced the SIM card reader of my iphone XR with a DUAL Sim card reader and can confirm that it works.

eSIM is then no longer possible because the eSIM chip is/was integrated in the Single Sim Reader.

I now use 2 Nano SIM cards from Deutsche Telekom.

This only works with the iPhone XR and iPhone 11. Not with the XS / XS Max / 11Pro / 11Pro Max.

Only the XR and 11 have a SIM card reader installed separately.

For all others, the SIM card reader is soldered to the logic board.

Bei allen anderen ist der SIM Card Reader auf dem Logicboard verlötet.

Does this really work? Can I simply swap out the single SIM reader in my iPhone XR for a deal SIM reader, and it will work? No other hardware modification required?
