An eSIM is a rewritable SIM card which is embedded in a mobile phone or other mobile device.

The e in eSIM stands for embedded. Unlike conventional SIM cards, eSIMs are not removable. Devices which include eSIMs can be used without inserting a SIM card. Instead, the SIM data is written to the eSIM to allow the device to connect to a mobile network. Instead of swapping a SIM card when you want to switch to a different mobile service provider, you add the data for that service provider to the eSIM.

Not all phones include an eSIM, and not all mobile service providers support eSIM functionality.
