eSIM technology: Does eSIM have a bright future?
The trend to completely replace a SIM card with an eSIM is because of the promising future of technology.
Despite the fact that eSIM technology was first implemented in a device in 2016, many smartphone users have no idea whether their gadgets are compatible with eSIM.
And what does eSIM even stand for? In the meantime, global demand for eSIMs is skyrocketing: there were 1.2 billion eSIM-enabled devices in 2021, which is forecast to rise to 3.4 billion by 2025.
eSIM versus SIM
In simple words, an eSIM is also a card in a device, but it is embedded during manufacturing. It is virtually represented by a data set that can be activated anytime.
Unlike a regular SIM card, an eSIM is not strictly tied to one service provider.
It can be connected to any other operator, allowing you to use additional services that are more suitable for you or offered at better prices.
Most current models of smartphones support eSIM technology, allowing users to get all the advantages of switching between two cards–a SIM and an eSIM.
Why is eSIM so beneficial to users? First and foremost, it is the value of time and money.
With this card, users have fewer problems traveling. They do not have to buy a local SIM card in a new country but can switch to a local operator with a few clicks.
At the same time, they can continue to use the services of their home mobile operators via a SIM plastic card on which all data is stored. Roaming is another big issue.
Usually, it is quite expensive when offered abroad by a domestic operator. Switching to an eSIM is one way to control your spending.
If a cell phone is lost or stolen, the user can immediately block a number and activate it with an eSIM on another device.
The eSIM can also help find a device, as operators can access the data and track the signal or block the card. Therefore, eSIM is truly convenient for world travelers.

The trend to completely replace a SIM card with an eSIM is obvious, at least in the recent presentation of the new iPhone 14.
Apple has discarded the infrastructure that supported physical SIM cards in favor of digital alternatives–eSIMs. These devices are now available in the U.S. and will soon appear in other markets.
