Note: devices sold in Mainland China, Macao, and Hong Kong are not equipped with eSIM and therefore are not compatible with Ubigi.
Ubigi is part of the wireless carriers that offer eSIM services listed by Apple.

iPhone & iPad users can add a second line on their device’s eSIM, and switch easily between the two. The term “eSIM” simply means an embedded SIM card. There are no physical SIM cards involved and no physical swapping over required by you. The information on an eSIM is rewritable, meaning you can decide to change your network operator on your iPhone. In fact, you can store up to five virtual SIM cards one eSIM at a time. It is really easy to add to a data plan – connecting iOS devices with eSIMs to a mobile account can be done in minutes. Your iPhone’s eSIM needs to be supported by the network or carrier and enabled by them. Not all networks support eSIM; however, Ubigi is one of the first international network providers that support eSIM for Apple iOS. Downloading Ubigi eSIM for iPhone is free and it takes only a few seconds when you download the Ubigi app. eSIM is great for regular travellers. eSIM should mean that you could go to another country and simply add a roaming eSIM to your handset while retaining access to your primary number. Using a carrier like Ubigi that connects to the local mobile network while abroad can be much cheaper than paying roaming costs to your regular operator. It also enables people to switch operators quickly to get connected if they are in an area with no signal.
