When the devices are programmed at the factory, the SIM Lock is activated by the manufacturer, upon the request of the mobile service provider company who sells the device. SIM locked Iphones are programmed to work with specific providers only and when other providers' SIM cards inserted, device checks whether the SIM card belongs to authorized provider. If an unauthorized carrier's SIM is used, your Apple Iphone 12 Mini will display "SIM Not Supported" or "SIM Invalid" message. This informs you that other Carriers' SIM cards will not work with the device as long as this lock is not removed.How Does the Unlock Process Work?
Database Update: Apple devices will not ask for the SIM Unlock Code. Iphones and Ipads keep their SIM lock information in their online device information databases and usually the phone is unlocked by the update made in these databases. When another Carrier's SIM card is used with an Iphone, it connects to device database over the Internet and checks the SIM lock information. To unlock the device, the device database is updated and the SIM lock status is changed to Unlocked. After the device connects to the device database again and confirms that the phone has been unlocked, it updates the phone's local memory to unlocked.
Unlock Code: Iphones can't be unlocked using unlock codes because Apple devices will not ask for SIM unlock code when another Carriers' SIMs used.
Note: Your Apple Iphone 12 Mini may ask for a passcode or user code to unlock the screen, but this is not a SIM unlock code and has nothing to do with the device's SIM lock.
Unlock Software: It is not possible to remove SIM locks of Iphones with software, because Iphones does not store SIM lock information in device's memory. SIM lock status must be updated in Carrier or manufacturer device database using device's IMEI (Serial number).

SIM Network Lock: The SIM network lock in your Apple Iphone 12 Mini is activated by the service provider company (who sold the phone) so that your Iphone can only be used with their SIMs and it won't work with other providers/carriers.
