The eSIM smartphone market is set to reach 420 million units annually by 2022, due to Apple’s decision to incorporate the technology into its iPhone XR, XS and XS Max devices, which will accelerate eSIM market growth […]
September 2018 can be considered a significant milestone in the development and deployment of the eSIM, moving the eSIM smartphone market bar from one which was solely occupied by Google and its Pixel 2 device, shipping a few million a year toward, potentially, the hundreds of millions.
The firm says that Samsung, Huawei, LG and Xiaomi are all now more likely to incorporate eSIMs into their phones following Apple’s decision.
