Apple has fully switched over to eSIM. Users will no longer be able to physically insert a SIM card into their iPhones; instead, they will need to add providers digitally. The first manufacturer to actively promote widespread eSIM usage is Apple.
What a shock! With the iPhone 14, Apple has managed to do away with another another standard packaging component. The SIM card tray ejector is the victim for this year. Apple has not, however, made this decision due of “environmental concerns”. Its absence is entirely warranted because you won’t be using one in the future.
Because the iPhone 14 lineup is bound to become mainstream sooner rather than later, eSIM will benefit from the massive clout that Apple’s smartphones invariably carry. Hence, we could see more and more devices transition entirely to eSIM in the foreseeable future. Remember when the iPhone came with headphones and a charger? Neither do we. This is the power of Apple and, luckily, this time it has been used to pave the way for some major progress instead of just profit.
Additionally, traveling will be a breeze with eSIM support, because users will easily be able to activate a corresponding eSIM from the country they are visiting. Lastly, eSIM enables users to have multiple phone numbers and data plans all at once. Now this is minimalism done right.
The technology of eSIM has a number of inherent advantages over your usual mundane SIM card. For once, stealing an iPhone is set to become even more difficult, because a thief will have a very hard time removing an eSIM from your device.
