One of the novelties of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max is the support to the eSIM , which will be added to the traditional physical SIM. Well, according to a new report, this will lead to an increase in the adoption of this technology.
Although Apple uses eSIM on the iPad and Apple Watch for some years now, this solution has not yet been considered for smartphones. According to ABI Research, the fact that the Cupertino colossus has decided to include it in the new iPhone will change the cards on the table, and many other manufacturers will opt for this technology. ” The smartphone market with eSIM will reach 420 million units by 2022, thanks to Apple’s decision to incorporate this technology into its iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max, ” the report reads.
The opinion of ABI Research is that other giants such as Samsung, Huawei, LG, and Xiaomi will follow the example of Apple and launch smartphones with support to eSIM.
