Should be easier than 11 pro which required a lot of soldering. Just replace the sim tray and reader.

I'm worried if there is already a software lock if we replace the sim card reader on the ip13


@Yan Mar Trading There was never a software lock, on iPhone 11 there was boardID resistors and eSIM power you need to modify, the eSIM seem to be included in the removable reader from 12 and above.


@tomchai so it is just a remove and replace process. thanks for the answers


@Yan Mar Trading according to the repair video, yes, but I'm not 100% sure, you can try, worst case you put the original one back.


@tomchai i have search youtube but the only video I found was with the ip12, the Hugh Jeffreys video

your right, if things don't work out I can just put the original one back on, I was just hoping somebody did it already and share his experience

Yes you can do this. I have an iPhone 13. US model, I switch sim readers, both sims work fine, there’s a small glitch when connecting calls but it’s nothing to worry about.

Please be aware though, using 2 SIM cards from the same provider, sometimes it will only pick up on one sim, not the other, so best use 2 different service providers, 5g works fine aswell. You can run 2 WhatsApp’s no problem and can alternate calls.

Another bonus is that you can have automatically tex or call from any sim if you separate your call lists into 2 sections using the list feature in the phone book,

God bless you all.
