With iOS 16, the owners of eSIM will now be able to share the ownership of their sim with other iPhone users via Bluetooth. It’s an interesting and exciting feature that takes a step forward toward removing the need for a physical sim card.


However, since IOS 16 is still in beta mode, this function will have several limitations and might not work on some Apple iPhones which support the latest operating system. Also, the eSIM that an iPhone user has installed in their device must support Bluetooth transfer for this feature to work.

The feature is now available in multiple countries across the world, including the United States and the United Kingdom, via the iOS 16 beta. The eSIM transfer through Bluetooth will be available to all users when Apple releases the iOS 16 entirely in this year’s fall.
