How to Convert Your Own SIM into Nano SIM for iPhone?


While iPhone 5's launch created waves of disappointment among the Apple fanboys with the lack of highly expected elements such as NFC, Retina Display and wireless charging, the handset still has some interesting aspects.

It is the slimmest Apple smartphone launched ever being 18% thinner than its predecessor – iPhone 4S. In order to reduce thickness of the handset, the Cupertino tech titan has adopted numerous innovative technologies including in-cell touch technology for the display, new Lightning connector instead of the 30 pin dock connector and the incorporation of smaller Nano SIM card.

How to get a Nano SIM card?

There are two ways to get a Nano SIM card for the new iPhone 5. The first one is too simple, as you just have to order one from your service provider. The second method is to convert your current SIM into a Nano SIM card.
