Installing eSIM on iOS 17.4 and Later without Scanning a QR Code

Explanation for Installing eSIM on iOS 17.4 and Later without Scanning a QR Code.


Apple has introduced a new Universal Link that simplifies the installation of eSIMs on iOS devices running version 17.4 or later. This method bypasses the need to scan a QR code and directly initiates the eSIM installation process.

Here’s How It Works:

1. Receive the Universal Link: When you purchase an eSIM from iTechtify, you will receive an email containing a Universal Link. This link can be used to install your eSIM without needing to scan a QR code.


2. Click the Universal Link: On your iOS device (version 17.4 or later), click the Universal Link provided in your email. This will automatically open the eSIM installation screen.


3. Follow On-Screen Prompts: Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the eSIM installation. You will see a prompt asking for permission to activate the new eSIM, as shown below.

4. No QR Code Needed: With this method, the Local Profile Assistant (LPA) string, which is normally embedded in the QR code, is directly passed to the eSIM installation process via the link. This makes the installation quicker and easier.
