The new type of SIM card that iPhone 5 users have been waiting for will be available at all du shops starting tomorrow.

Nano SIM cards are smaller than the conventional SIM cards currently available in the UAE and are the only type of SIM card compatible with the iPhone 5.

The SIM cards will be available for new du customers or existing customers who want to convert their old SIMs.

The process takes less than five minutes, according to a news release from the telecommunications company.
