iPhone 14 without a SIM card: What is an eSIM?

That iPhone 14 and 14 Pro are the first phones from Apple that do not take a SIM card. Instead, they use an eSIM that is embedded in the device and is non-removable. Since SIM cards have been used in cell phones for decades, some buyers will be confused by their absence.

What is an eSIM in an iPhone 14?

An eSIM in an iPhone 14 serves the same purpose as a normal SIM card. It has a permanent eSIM ID (EID), and a mobile operator’s provisioning service uses this number to link the phone to your account.

In practice, usage won’t be much different than any other iPhone. For example, if you buy a phone from a wireless service provider, they will provide the device for you. Alternatively, if you’re buying an unlocked device, you can probably enter the EID through your carrier’s website to activate the phone.

Apple introduced eSIMs back in 2017 in the Apple Watch Series 3 and has been an optional feature on iPhones since 2018. However, the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro are the first phones from Apple to completely remove the ability to use a traditional SIM card. Their big advantage is improved reliability, increased network security and they take up less space.
