The iPhone 14 Unlocked, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max are not compatible with physical SIM cards, but instead include dual eSIM compatibility, enabling several cellular plans to be activated on a single device, according to the technical specifications on Apple’s website.

What is eSim?  What if your phone is locked to a specific carrier? How would you unlock your device? You can read this article to know more about eSim: https://www.unlockbase.com/blog/category/esim/

Apple’s website has a list of global carriers that support eSIM technology. This covers AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon, Xfinity Mobile, Boost Mobile, H2O Wireless, Straight Talk, and C Spire, among others, in the United States.

Why Did Apple Switch the iPhone 14 to eSIM-Only?

Apple has established a new standard with its iPhone 14 series by becoming the first major manufacturer to totally delete the actual SIM card from its US iPhone models. Apple will continue to include a real SIM card slot on all other overseas models.

If you purchase the iPhone 14 Unlocked from Apple’s website today, the following message will appear with your order: These devices cannot be activated with an actual SIM card.

Apple said that the iPhone 14 standard can accommodate up to six eSIMs. However, only two may be active simultaneously. In contrast, the iPhone 14 Pro has a sim capacity of eight.

How can I tell whether my iPhone 14 Unlocked?

Apple offered a way to verify whether your iPhone 14 Unlocked or locked without contacting your carrier and navigating to a person who could answer this easy query last year.

 As long as iOS 14 or iOS 15 is installed, you may access Carrier Lock by navigating to Settings > General > About and scrolling down to Carrier Lock. Good news! If you notice No SIM limitations on this line, your iPhone is unlocked.

What if it’s locked?

If your iPhone has been paid for but is still not unlocked, you will need to contact your carrier to seek an unlock. Prior to calling, though, you may be able to commence the unlocking procedure using your carrier’s website. Check out AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon’s device unlocking sites; your request may take up months to be processed and need to submit all the requirements.

But there’s an easy way to unlock your device using UnlockBase.
