This service is initially available to the recent iPhone models, with a plan to expand to other phones at a later stage.

Before e-SIM support was possible only via Airtel and Reliance Jio telecom operators. Vodafone Idea, however, did bring an early glimpse at the new experience by announcing a similar approach for Apple smartwatch last month.

The list of iPhone models that have received eSIM support is iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, 2018’s iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, and the 2020 iPhone SE.

This brings the ease of using more than one network simultaneously especially for iPhone users as they don’t have a traditional, dual-SIM card slot.
