How to ADD A NEW eSIM on iPhone?

With the introduction of eSIMs in newer iPhones, there is now more flexibility than ever when it comes to managing different phone numbers on one device. This industry-standard allows you to activate a cellular plan from your carrier without having to use a physical SIM. But how exactly do you add a new eSIM on your iPhone?

Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Go to "Settings" and then "Cellular."
  2. Tap "Add Cellular Plan."
  3. You can transfer a phone number from another iPhone directly by selecting the "Transfer from iPhone" option. Make sure that the other iPhone is passcode protected and that Bluetooth is turned on.
  4. Alternatively, you can scan a QR code provided by your carrier.
  5. Once you have scanned the QR code or transferred the phone number from your other iPhone, your new eSIM will be installed and ready to use.

It's worth noting that you can install up to eight or more eSIMs on an iPhone and use two phone numbers on the same device. However, your iPhone must be at least an iPhone XS or newer to support eSIMs.

While eSIMs are broadly available in the United States, there may still be options to use physical SIMs in parts of Europe.

Overall, adding a new eSIM on your iPhone is a simple process that can offer more flexibility and convenience when it comes to managing multiple phone numbers. Why not give it a try and see how it can benefit you?
