Before you can even use your new iPhone 13, 13 Pro, 13 Mini, or Pro Max, you need to know how to insert your SIM card into your device.

Thankfully for users, the process for putting your SIM card into the phone hasn’t really changed in a while when it comes to iPhones. Customers still have to use a small pin to open the hatch on either side of their phones and slot in the card.

Here’s what you need to do to insert and remove your SIM from the phone. If you’re still having trouble or the latch won’t open, though, be sure to contact Apple customer support or take it into an Apple store for more support.

  1. Find the special pin included with your device in the box. It should be a small metal rod that’s oval in shape.
  2. Using the thin long end of it, insert into the round small hole located on either the right or left side of the device.
  3. Press into the device gently until you hear a click. The SIM card slot should pop out.
  4. Take out the small piece and make a note of how it came out. Put your SIM card into it correctly and reinsert the piece into your phone until you hear a click.

If you follow these steps and ensure your SIM card fits correctly (and is the correct size), you should be able to activate your iPhone.
