It took almost a year since the launch of the last iPhones, but here we are: in short, the three largest operators in Brazil offer support for Yes it is of Apple smartphones.
THE clear the movement started last March, while the Live joined her a few days later. Now, months later, it’s the TIM that announced support for the “digital chip” of iPhones XS, XS Max and XR – effectively enabling owners of these devices to enjoy the technology Dual SIM on them, with a physical chip and a virtual one.
For those who are not understanding the story very well, I explain: eSIM is a relatively recent technology that dispenses with the physical chip to place your cell phone in the network of a certain operator and connect it to your contracted plan. Instead of opening the tray and inserting a traditional SIM card, all you have to do is scan a QR code offered by your operator and activate your plan – on iOS, this is done by accessing Settings »Cellular» Add Cellular Plan.
According to TIM, all of its plans are compatible with eSIM; you just need to go to one of the operator’s 130 own stores and request the novelty, either in an existing plan or signing a new contract. The company specifically cites the iPhones XS, XS Max and XR as compatible, but says that any device with support for the technology can take advantage of its digital chips.
If you have a device that supports eSIM, like the aforementioned iPhones, switching to new technology will bring some benefits: in addition to freeing up space for you to insert a physical chip with a secondary plan in your device, eSIM is much safer, with continuous encrypted authentication that avoids cloning your number. In addition, if your device is stolen, there is no way for the bad guys to forcibly remove the chip, disconnecting it from the network – giving you more time to locate the device and erase it remotely.
Who will test (or is already testing) the novelty, be sure to tell your experience below.
