With one big flagship announcement from the smartphone industry left to come, we enter the final quarter of this year. That one announcement however is capable of overshadowing all. What else but the Apple iphone 12. Good news being that Apple plans to launch the latest addition to the iPhone family before the end of October. So you can expect to celebrate the upcoming festivals by gifting one to yourself or a dear one. Now, as popular as Apple iPhones are, or in general any Apple product, they take some getting used to. Quite generally, those unfamiliar with how iOS should be treated, feel dejected. So today we decided to take one such issue that people might face problems with. The popularity of Jio eSIM resulted in Apple providing a fix for their dual sim facility in India. Let’s figure out how this works on Apple iPhone 11 series.
Activating eSIM feature in iPhone 11 Series
Let’s begin by addressing the elephant in the room. What is an eSIM? Basically, it is your resolve to not having that extra sim-slot you are tired complaining about. Once enabled, you can activate your prepaid/postpaid subscription service on the device without actually needing a physical SIM. Both Reliance Jio and Airtel eSIMs could be enabled, however the method to enable the former is a little different. First thing first, iOS 12.1 is a prerequisite and therefore you must upgrade your device, right now.
Now comes the outdoor part. Visit the nearest Reliance Jio Store or Reliance Digital Outlet. You then need to fill a certain CAF form with your Jio number and IMEI number of your iPhone 11. Post that, it’s just a matter of scanning a QR code with your iPhone that the executive would show you. In a few hours your eSIM would get activated and start behaving as the default Secondary SIM. The order of primary and secondary SIM is up to your preference between the physical Nano-SIM or your new eSIM. To those with the Airtel SIM, the process has more to do with mobile-verification. Also, Airtel has only restricted this eSIM activation to their postpaid users.
