iPhone 5 to get nano-SIM tray

It looks like your iPhone upgrade will mean hacking away at your SIM once again in the battle of the smartphone bulge

The iPhone 5 might be bigger in screen size, but its innards are shrinking, not least its SIM card.

Now the new nano-SIM tray has been snapped, appearing on Nowhere Else to show off its petite dimensions next to the comparatively broad iPhone 4S micro-SIM dish. And with news of operators stockpiling nano-SIMs ahead of the September 21st release we’re fairly sure you may be cutting up your micro SIM soon.
