Apple launched the new iPhone 15 last week with a brand-new USB-C port in line with EU regulations (if you haven’t seen it yet here’s CNET’s quick roundup). Last year, Apple started its migration to eSIM-only devices by removing the physical SIM tray in its iPhone 14 for the US market. It had been heavily rumoured that Apple would continue this move by introducing eSIM-only devices to more markets this month, however, this seems to have been put on hold, at least for now, as it focuses on moving to the new power port instead.
Nevertheless, the increasing uptick in eSIM adoption shows no signs of slowing with the GSMA estimating that 1 in every 3 phones will be eSIM by 2025. This will be aided by both Samsung and Google introducing new eSIM transfer services this year that will make it even easier for users to switch to eSIM. Even if eSIM devices do not currently make up the lion’s share of devices of your market you will still have a host of business travellers, tourists, and grey import users wanting to connect to your network via eSIM.
