You can use a physical nano-SIM for one cellular plan and an eSIM for one or more other cellular plans on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and latest models. If your carrier supports it and you don’t have a nano-SIM, an eSIM will be your only cellular plan. Your iPhone stores the eSIM provided by your carrier in a digital format.

You can unlock your second cellular plan by scanning the QR code provided by your carrier, using your carrier’s iPhone app, installing an allocated plan, or manually entering the below:

  1. Open the Camera app and scan your QR code.
  2. When the Cellular Plan Detected notification appears, tap it.
  3. Tap Continue, at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Tap Add Cellular Plan.

If you’re asked to enter a confirmation code to activate the eSIM, enter the number that your carrier provided.
