With the launch of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Apple Plus many people will be in doubt if the SIM Card (SIM card) that have on their devices will fit or not this new smartphone. The quick answer to this question is; probably yes, but depending on your old device, the answer may be no.
Old appliances use the so-called SIM Card, Having sizable chip encased in a plastic structure. The not so old now use the micro-SIM card called, which eliminated enough of that plastic SIM Card. Now, the latest phones from Apple use so-called nano-SIM Cards.
This nano-SIM model eliminated all plastic structure that came around the chip and, for it, was much smaller than previous versions. If you are a brave adventurer, can try cut your chip and test it on the device, but already notice as soon as the Apple warranty does not cover problems caused by hardware device chips “modified”. Then very carefully if risk this procedure. Below the alert Apple's own on this subject.
Damage to the tray or device caused by a modified SIM card isn’t covered by Apple’s hardware warranty.
To further clarify the difference in the size of SIM cards, see the table below for photos and the relationship of which iPhone model uses which version of the chip.

Now I'm sure will have no doubt as to which the SIM card size that your iPhone uses, but the trick is to buy the correct version on your carrier's store.
I would not risk losing the warranty of Apple trying to reuse an old SIM card. The financial economy really is not worth it, because a new chip costs on average US $ 10.00. The only inconvenience is the time it takes to change your number to the new card.
Despite this minor setback, continue with the suggestion that buy a new chip.
