Apple Is Now Highlighting the Advantages of Using an iPhone 14 Equipped With an eSIM While Traveling Abroad

Apple published today a new support document outlining various “options and benefits” for using eSIMs while traveling abroad in response to customer criticism regarding removing the SIM card tray on all iPhone 14 models sold in the United States. This criticism stems from the fact that Apple released the SIM card tray from all iPhone 14 models sold in the United States.

Apple maintains that an eSIM offers a higher level of protection than a traditional SIM card since it cannot be removed from an iPhone if it is misplaced or stolen. Apple also claims that using eSIMs eliminates the requirement to acquire, carry, and swap physical SIM cards and the need to wait for new ones to arrive in the mail.

According to the support document, any iPhone model released after the iPhone XS can store eight or more eSIMs. Any iPhone model released after the iPhone 13 can have two eSIMs activities simultaneously.

According to the information provided in the support article, this “may, for instance, comprise one eSIM for your house and another eSIM for the place you’re visiting.” “Changing your selections in Settings will instantly allow you to switch which of your saved eSIMs is now active. “

Customers wishing to roam internationally with their current carrier, acquire an eSIM from a local carrier while traveling abroad, or purchase a prepaid data eSIM from a worldwide service provider can all find the information they need in the support document.

Apple claims that customers who buy an unlocked iPhone 14 model in the United States can activate it with any of the more than 400 carriers around the world that accept eSIM on the iPhone and in any of the 100 markets in which it is available. Apple also notes that many international service providers sell prepaid eSIM data plans that can be used for extended periods in countries worldwide.

When going outside of the United States with an iPhone 14 model that can only use an eSIM, several consumers have voiced worries regarding the availability of eSIMs in other countries.

Austin Mann, a travel photographer, said in his review of the iPhone 14 Pro camera that he was ” concerned about the practicality of an eSIM-only approach for travelers with US iPhones who frequently visit the developing world.” Mann added that he typically buys a local SIM card in the countries where he travels to make-it easier and more affordable to communicate with people within the country. Mann stated that he would be overjoyed to get rid of his collection of real SIM cards. Still, he indicated that he has been unable to figure out how to sign up for an eSIM line in East Africa, a region he hopes to visit during the summer of 2019.

Although it is unlikely that the support guide will appease dissatisfied clients, it is still helpful for understanding how to work with eSIM technology.
