  1. Gently insert the small paperclip you bent earlier into the small pinhole opening in the SIM tray.
  2. Apply a small amount of pressure until the SIM tray pops out of the iPhone or iPad. Don't apply pressure at an angle, only in the direction of the pinhole.
  3. Grab hold of the SIM tray and pull straight out.
  4. Swap your SIM card and re-insert the tray. Make sure you have installed the SIM in the correct orientation. Also, make sure you are inserting the SIM tray in the correct orientation.
