What is eSIM?

  • An eSIM is an industry-standard digital SIM that allows you to activate a cellular plan from your carrier without having to use a physical SIM.

  • eSIM is more secure than a physical SIM because it can't be removed if your iPhone or iPad is lost or stolen.

  • With eSIM, you don't need to obtain, carry, and swap physical SIM cards (which can also be lost), or wait for them to arrive by mail.
