How do I activate the eSIM on an iPhone or iPad in Turkey?

Activating eSIM on iPhones and iPads in Turkey

Some iPhones and iPads purchased in Turkey have their eSIM disabled by default. However, if the device was bought and activated after June 23, 2020, the eSIM will be activated during the setup process. If the eSIM is not enabled, the user should contact their mobile carrier for assistance.

The provided instructions are meant to help users activate the eSIM on devices that were purchased before June 23, 2020. It is important to create a backup before following these instructions, as the device will need to be reset.

To begin, the user should ensure that their device is updated to the latest iOS or iPadOS version. They can then go to Settings > General > Transfer or Reset. From there, they should select “Erase All Content and Settings” and confirm the erasure by entering their passcode or Apple ID password.

Once the device has been reset, the user can restore it from their backup. After completing these steps, they can proceed to set up an eSIM on their iPhone or iPad.

It is important to note that Turkey’s local regulation states that if a user intends to use roaming data services for a total of 91 days or more in a 120-day period, their device’s IMEI should be registered with the Central Equipment Identity Register of Turkey. Users are advised to contact the CEIR for more information on registering their device.

For any further questions or concerns, users can reach out to Apple’s support channels.
