Vodafone Idea launches eSIM support in India

Vodafone Idea launched eSIM support for its postpaid customers in Delhi, Gujarat, and Mumbai circles. With the new addition, eligible Vodafone and Idea customers will no longer be required to put in a physical SIM card to access their cellular network on their mobile phones. T

hey will, instead, be able to access the network through the integrated SIM chip. The new support is initially available to the recent iPhone models, though it will be available expanded to other phones at a later stage.

The list of iPhone models that have received eSIM support by Vodafone Idea include the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone SE (2020), iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR.

The service will also soon be available on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Fold, the telco said in a statement.

Up until now, Airtel and Reliance Jio were the two telecom operators that were offering eSIM support in India. Vodafone Idea, however, did bring an early glimpse at the new experience by announcing a similar support for the Apple Watch cellular models in the country last month.
