Airtel and Reliance Jio also support eSim on the iPhone XR, XS and XS MAX. While Airtel has restricted this to postpaid users, it is available for both prepaid and postpaid customers of Jio. With eSIMs, users will not need to put in a physical SIM card to access a cellular network. The cellular plans can be activated remotely on eSIM. It is easy to set up too. All you need to do is scan a QR code or numerical code provided by your carrier.
