Dual sim is one of the most distinct features of smartphones that were usually made in Asian countries. It is by far, one of the advantages of the other products from iPhone; to be able to utilize two networks in one smartphone. However, it seems like Apple is already doing some adjustments in their iPhone products as it is rumored to have a dual-sim feature in the near future.
Apple To Work on Dual-Sim Feature In Its Future iPhones
Sources reported that the absence of a dual-sim feature might be one of the considerations why iPhone is never booming in some of the countries despite of its unique features and specifications. Its limitation of being able to only use one network lowers the chances of it to be sold in some places. But Apple seems to exhaust its entire feature as it was speculated that its future product could include a dual-SIM card option.
Forbes stated that there has been a document that was filed in China's State Intellectual Property Office which states that iPhone is allowed to go on a dual-SIM card option. Sources told that it was submitted and published just this year. It is also believed that Apple was granted the patent for dual-sim functionality in the United States.
Included in the patent is this statement:
"Some mobile devices have the capability of using multiple SIMs. Allowing users to maintain different wireless services, such as for business and personal use."

However, it was also admitted that Apple might face network carriers issue as it is linked in some of the biggest telephone carriers in the world. Speculations told that the iPhones with dual-sim feature might be unveiled in countries where dual-SIM option is common, like China and India.
With all of the speculations revolving, there has never been a confirmation regarding all these allegations.
