Elevating the eSIM Experience with iOS 17

As Apple continues to spearhead the widespread adoption of eSIM technology through its iPhone lineup, more and more people are transitioning from being oblivious to eSIMs to considering them an indispensable part of their mobile experience. However, there has been a notable inconvenience in the eSIM installation process on Apple devices, particularly if you possess just one smartphone. This stumbling block has revolved around the hassle of copying eSIM QR codes from one device to another.

Traditionally, individuals would purchase eSIM plans via a web browser on their PC, displaying the eSIM QR code on the computer screen. Then, they would use their iPhones to scan this QR code. While this method worked, it was far from seamless.

Enter iOS 17, the latest evolution of Apple's mobile operating system, which promises to streamline the eSIM installation process. With this update, Apple has taken a significant step towards simplifying eSIM adoption.

Now, with iOS 17, you can add an eSIM to your iPhone without the need for the multi-step process of transferring QR codes from your PC to your device. Here's how it works:

  1. Navigate to Settings: Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  2. Select Cellular: Scroll down and tap on "Cellular" or "Mobile Data," depending on your region.
  3. Add eSIM: Within the Cellular settings, you'll find an option to "Add Cellular Plan" or "Add eSIM." Tap on it.
  4. Choose 'Use QR Code': When prompted to add an eSIM, select the option to use a QR code.
  5. Open Photos: Instead of relying on an external source like a PC, iOS 17 allows you to access your iPhone's local photo album.
  6. Select eSIM QR Code: Browse through your phone's gallery to find the eSIM QR code you wish to use. Choose it.
  7. Activation: The device will automatically recognize and extract the eSIM information from the selected QR code, and you'll be guided through the activation process.
