An eSIM also known as an Embedded or Electronic SIM, is a SIM that is built into your mobile device and cannot be physically removed. There’s no physical SIM card that you need to insert.
A SIM card is a physical chip card you slot into your phone, normally in a tray that pops out from the side. A SIM comes in three sizes: Mini-SIM, Micro-SIM and Nano-SIM. Unlike a SIM that requires physically moving it to another device, with an eSIM, you can switch between devices in seconds, and you don't have to contact your service provider to get it done.
