Although eSIM technology has been around for years, it has only been widely commercialized in recent years, and apple apple is the biggest contributor. The Cupertino-based tech giant has been using the technology on the iPhone since 2018, with dual SIM card support on a SIM tray. But eSIM’s support depends heavily on the communications operator, and Google’s virtual operator, Google Fi, will relax its support for iPhone devices in recent days.
To be clear, Google Fi introduced eSIM support for the iPhone as early as last month, but there is a high usage threshold. Google Fi is only available to new users if you want to use Google Fi on your iPhone. Fortunately, this should be a temporary measure, and now Google has relaxed the requirement.
Some users have responded to the Reddit community and are able to use the iPhone’s eSIM using their existing Google Fi account. But the whole process is not as straightforward as the new users, after all, the official has not yet announced the plan.
Users who are interested in trying can uninstall the Google Fi app, then reinstall and sign in. They will then be prompted to switch to eSIM and guide the user through the process of activating it. It is important to note that not all old Google Fi users are currently available.
