What is an eSIM?

Contrary to traditional physical SIM cards, eSIM cards have an embedded chip inside a device. It is not removable and remains in the same device where it finds the space. For an eSIM to function, it must be supported by the carrier. At the moment, limited carriers support eSIM but it’s growing in numbers.
