Manzana presented on Wednesday the new models and features of the iPhone 14, which stand out for an improvement in the quality of image taking and the inclusion of an emergency satellite communication system; however, a new particularity would make its use limited in Peru: the eSIM.
What is eSIM?
The new iPhone 14 that will be marketed in the United States will only use the eSIM and no longer the SIM Card or traditional chip that we are used to placing in our mobile phones. What’s more, the iPhone 14 will not even have the classic slot on the sides to place the chip.
The eSIM is a virtual SIM card pre-installed in the iPhone 14, which will be linked through QR codes that allow, among other things, to have more than one mobile number on the same phone. However, only one line can be active at a time.
What operators offer eSIM for iPhone 14 in Peru
The main operators in Peru (Movistar, Claro and Entel) do not yet offer eSIM in their plans. The operators Waoo and GPON, allies of Moving SumThey have prepaid and postpaid plans with eSIM; nevertheless, Manzana you don’t have it in your list of cell phone operators that offer the eSIM service.
In said list, it can be seen that operators such as Movistar or Claro do offer eSIM in countries such as Ecuador and Argentina and are expected to update their plans in Peru, although mobile operators that have eSIM technology will work on the new iPhone.
The other solution is for Apple to ship another version of the iPhone 14 that supports the traditional SIM Card, but there is no word yet on that possibility.
