    Considering the effort Apple goes through to make their devices as thin as possible, plus their attempts to entirely eliminate physical SIMs due to their bulk, I doubt the tolerances in the SIM card tray leave much room for error.

    Is there a risk? I think it's safe to say there is.

    I'm sure the same risk applies to Android and other phones . iFruits don't have their own unique SIM specs.

    Another good reference to read before deciding to cut your own nano SIM:

    Once again, the sky seems to be falling. I've used cut sims in probably every iPhone since the 5 without a problem. I still have two cutters but the last time I used one was in 2016. I ported in a line from a prepaid flip phone to a 6S. Worked fine as usual.

    Some regulars on this forum know I travel internationally some, and describe my use of prepaid data services. I currently use Keepgo and FlexiroamX. KeepGo provides a Nano sim, and FlexiroamX uses a sim sticker that rides on your sim. Their app lets you switch between sims & service on the fly. The sim sticker adds a little thickness to a standard nano. I have added & removed this paired setup from several phones & iPads without a glitch yet. About 1 out of every 5-6 swaps I might get a "No Service" notice in the status bar, but opening and closing the sim tray once seems to correct that issue. My pointed there seems to be a little more clearance that is being inferred by some, and FlexiroamX has been selling this sim sticker around the world for a while without any caveats except that older, full size SIM cards are probably too thick for their sticker.

    Check out the graphics at Flexiroam and see what I'm talking about if this isn't clear.

    As always, YMMV.

    Yep, everything's all made up about phones that have had SIMs get stuck and ruin phones. Might as well smoke two packs a day also because some do that and don't get cancer.

    Right?!

    Is it a risk yes it is, but nothing different than walking out your front door and dying. Not a big deal unless you make it one.

    Yeah, so why avoid the risks you can easily avoid, because you are going to die anyway - brilliant thinking.
