Learn how to enable eSIM on Apple Watch easily


The eSIM (embedded SIM) feature on the Apple Watch allows users to activate a Cellular Plan on the watch without the need for a physical SIM card. This feature is available on Apple Watch Series 3 and later models running watchOS 7 or later.

Enabling eSIM on your Apple Watch allows you to stay connected even when your iPhone isn’t nearby, a feature that’s especially useful for those who want to leave their phone at home while they go for a run or workout.

And with an eSIM, you can make and receive calls and send and receive messages directly on your Apple Watch without the need for a physical SIM card.

Steps to activate eSIM on Apple Watch

1. On your iPhone, open the Watch app, and tap on the Mobile Data tab. If you don’t see the Mobile Data tab, your Apple Watch doesn’t support eSIM.

2. Make sure your Apple Watch is running the latest version of watchOS. You can check this by going to the General settings on your Apple Watch and tapping on Software Update. If an update is available, follow the instructions to install it.

3. On the Mobile Data tab, tap Add Plan. A list of carriers that support eSIM will be displayed on your Apple Watch. Select the carrier you want to use for your eSIM plan.

Follow the instructions given by the carrier to activate the plan. This includes scanning a QR code, entering a confirmation code, or signing up for a plan through your carrier’s website or app.

Once the plan is activated, you will see the carrier name and plan details in the Cellular tab of the Watch app.

To use an eSIM, make sure your Apple Watch is connected to a cellular network. You can check this by swiping up on the watch face to access Control Center, then tapping the Cellular icon.

– The cellular icon must contain a green dot to indicate that it is connected to a cellular network.

Once your Apple Watch is connected to a cellular network, you can make and receive calls and send and receive messages directly on your Apple Watch, even when it’s not connected to your iPhone.
