Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) nano-size (2012 – )

Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) nano-size (4FF) was introduced in 2012, and reduces the previous micro-SIM to just the contact area, with a small rim of isolating material to avoid short circuits within the socket.

Although slightly thinner than previous SIM formats, it retains the same contact arrangements and can be used in devices using mini- or micro-SIMs with an adaptor.

The iPhone 5 was the first smartphone to use a nano-SIM card.
