The iPhone 14 Is eSIM-Only

Many manufacturers put in place the eSIM-only or eSIM first strategy, meaning that when the manufacturers sell their devices, they deliver it with the SIM directly embeded in the device. Apple’s new iPhones — the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus — won’t have physical SIM cards. The company announced the novelty at its event in Cupertino in September, revealing that eSIM will be the only way the iPhone 14 series connects with carriers — at least in the U.S. We can hence expect a significant growth of eSIM first or eSIM only phones in the years to come.

Mainstream adoption of eSIM technology in smartphones is happening. The question is no longer whether it will happen, but when it will happen. Operators don't typically disclose their expectations, but there are a few exceptions. 

For example, Orange expects eSIM ot reach almost 100% of the Belgian market by 2030. We forecast that by 2023, more than 500 million smartphone connections will use eSIM. Hence, operators who refuse to embrace the eSIM service will miss out on this slice of the market that will represent 10% of the total market. 

Over the coming years, OEMs are likely to shift their focus towards eSIM-only-devices. Once this prediction bears its fruits, operators who are lagging behind in terms of eSIM implementation will lose a part of the market share. Hence, operators who plan on waiting until 2023 or later to reconsider their plans will lag behind. Implementing eSIM and integrating it into operator business processes (especially customer-facing processes) takes time, so the journey needs to start as early as possible.
