How does the Apple Sim in Russia

I heard that Apple Sim has been working in the Russian Federation for a long time, how to set it up and what is needed for that?

Hello, Maxim.

Unfortunately, such a promising project as the Apple Sim in Russia temporarily stalled.

In theory, the user can purchase an Apple SIM card and programmatically switch between different operators and the tariffs provided. It already works in some countries, but not with us.

Now, none of the Russian operators have concluded an agreement with Apple for cooperation in the framework of this project.

Currently, Apple Sim in Russia is supported by two foreign operators AlwaysOnline Wirelessand GigSky .

The first one has been providing services since December 2015, but connecting to the company’s tariff plans is unavailable for Russian citizens. Foreign tourists can use the service during their stay in the country.

GigSky did not introduce regional restrictions on connection, but in Russia there are tariffs from $ 10 for 300 MB of traffic to $ 50 for 5 GB.

As you can see, at the moment the service is working technically. Real benefits can not be obtained. It remains only to wait for domestic operators to agree with Apple.
