2.Select “Install eSIM”.

3.Tap on “INSTALL NOW” at the bottom of your screen for initiating the installation.

(Please note that once the installation process has started, it cannot be interrupted, which means that if you try to go back to the previous step or close the app, you’ll no longer be able to install the same eSIM).
