Devices Like iPhone XS and More can be now supported by Airtel eSIM.

airtel esim

Airtel and Reliance Jio are currently the two telecom networks in the country advancing the facility of eSIM to the users. In 2018, Apple advanced the offer of dual SIM options to its iPhone users. Now to stand out from smartphone manufacturers out there, Apple did it differently and kept the SIM slot integrated and started to avail a new eSIM on the phone to allow dual SIM usage at the same time. The eSIM indicates an embedded SIM, and as the name suggests, it comes fixed onto the motherboard of the phone.

This makes the eSIM non-removable from the device, and unlike the manual SIM card which can only work with a single slot, the eSIM can be linked to any carrier and can facilitate easy connection. Presently, in India, Bharti Airtel is the telecom network which offers eSIMs and these eSIMs from Airtel can be operated with iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and the Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.


n 2018, for the first time, Apple started offering dual SIM options to its iPhone users. Now unlike all the other smartphone manufacturers out there, Apple did it differently and kept the SIM slot intact and went on to introduce a new eSIM on the phone to allow dual SIM usage.

The eSIM stands for embedded SIM, and as the name suggests, it comes soldered right onto the motherboard of the phone. This makes the eSIM non-removable from the device, and unlike a standard SIM card which can only work with a single carrier, the eSIM can be linked to any carrier and can facilitate easy connection.

Currently, we know that in India, Bharti Airtel is one of the telecom operators offering eSIMs and these eSIMs from Airtel are known to be compatible with iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and the Google Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

Pros and cons of eSIM

Formerly, the eSIM facility was introduced in Apple Watch, and then the technology followed to other Apple products like the iPhone XS, XS Max and the XR. Even during the release of Apple Watch in India, Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel were the only two telecom operators supporting the Apple Watch on their circle.

There are some outstanding benefits of using eSIM, and it is the updated version of the standard SIM card. The interesting fact about eSIM is that having an eSIM would mean fewer chances of water damage and hardware wear since there is no SIM tray which reduces the risk of failure. For the telecom operators, it reduces the time of manufacture and distributing a large number of SIM cards. Relatively, being a new technology, makes it gain less support for eSIMs in the current market which is the major drawback of dropping in new technology.
