Apple Aiming to Phase Out Physical SIM Card and Introduce eSIM


When it comes to excelling in smartphone technology, then Apple stands at the top position. Recently, Apple is planning to replace physical SIM cards with eSIM. According to the latest leak, the tech company is aiming to start this process with Apple iPhone 14 series.

Numerous reports suggest that the tech company is advising major carriers to get ready for the launch of eSIM. This new feature will go live by September 2022. Before 2018, Apple was introducing the support feature of eSIM technology in dual-SIM smartphones like iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and affordable iPhone XR.


As soon as the year 2018 started, the tech giant switched to one physical SIM and one eSIM technology. This technology is not only restricted to iPhones only. Other smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series, Samsung Galaxy S20 series, Samsung Galaxy S21 series, Samsung foldable phones, Google Pixel smartphones, and other smartphones also support eSIM technology.

What’s An eSIM and How An Apple eSIM Will Function?

An eSIM is an embedded Subscriber Identity/Identification Module (SIM) card in smartphones, smartwatches, and other devices. It is easy for consumers to choose suitable prepaid or postpaid plans on their device with the eSIM without the need for any physical SIM card.

In order to use an eSIM in a smart device like a smartphone or smartwatch, the user has to install their eSIM profile on the device once it gets activated. As of now, there are only three eSIM providers in India, such as Airtel, VI (Vodafone Idea), and Reliance Jio.


There is also an interesting fact about eSIM, that any information stored in it is rewritable. Meaning, now it is easy for consumers to change their eSIM operator easily with just one phone call. If someone wishes to use their eSIM on any other device that is eSIM enabled, then they need to scan the QR code provided by their operator.
