An eSIM is a digital SIM that allows you to use an additional SIM within your phone without inserting a physical SIM card inside your phone, basically an embedded SIM.
By using a Dual SIM enabled phones, you can make and receive calls via two numbers from your single mobile phone device.

iPhone models supporting dual SIM are: iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR or later.
iOS 12.1 or later

What is required to use a dual SIM from two different carriers in your iPhone (models above):

1. An unlocked iPhone. If it is not unlocked, your both plans have to be from the same carrier.
2. An eSIM subscription from your preferred carrier. Your selected carrier will provide you the eSIM details upon subscription

Apple website display a list of wireless carriers from various countries that support eSIM – Wireless Carriers that offer eSIM service
Always recommended to check with your preferred carrier if they provide eSIM.

The biggest advantage of using eSIM I have ever seen is for the people travelling overseas for work, education etc and need to have a mobile plan from their home country. I use eSIM from India mobile provider to receive OTP, banking transaction messages etc from India onto my iPhone in Australia.

Considering you already have setup your physical nanoSIM plan in the usual way and you want to set up an eSIM plan in your iPhone. Please see the steps below.

Setting up eSIM on your iPhone via a QR code from the carrier:
1. In your iPhone, go to settings –> Mobile –> Add Mobile Plan
iPhone dual sim add mobile plan

2. Tap “Add Mobile Plan” to scan the QR code provided by your service provider. You may also be asked to enter the confirmation code that your service provided would have provided.

Screen to scan the QR:
iPhone dual sim scan QR code

3. Alternately, you can enter the details manually if QR scan is not working. Tap on “Enter Details Manually”
iPhone dual sim enter details manually

Thats’ an easy setup via QR code.

You can also setup eSIM using the service provider’s iOS App.
Setting up eSIM on your iPhone via the iOS App from your service provider:
1. You can download the app from App Store and follow the instructions in the App to set up the eSIM

Thats’ all..!

There would be further steps to label the plans. You may choose to label each plan based on their location or use.
Example, ‘personal’, ‘work’, ‘home country’ etc.

Next, you may want to set one of the mobile number as default to receive calls, iMessage or FaceTime etc.
