The new technology also enables subscribers to select an international roaming network while travelling out of the UAE, the telco said in a statement.
eSIMs or embedded SIMs are a key component of cellular- powered Internet of Things (IoT) networks, enabling devices to have out-of-the-box network connectivity without having to purchase a SIM card separately.
Etisalat said it is the first operator in UAE to provide the second generation eSIM on both iPhones and Apple Watch simultaneously, and comes in line with the telco’s efforts to bring the most advanced technologies to subscribers in the UAE.
Earlier this month, CEO Osman Sultan of rival telco du said his company was working with the Munich-based Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security on a deal that will soon see e-SIMS commercially available for customers in the UAE by the end of this month.
