AT & T in the US, Rogers and Fido in Canada and many other carriers launching eSIM support on the latest iPhones


Coinciding with today's launch of iOS 12.1.1, additional carriers around the world are enabling eSIM support on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, allowing dual-card functionality on these devices.

According to Apple's website, the latest carriers supporting the eSIM feature include AT & T in the United States; Rogers and Fido in Canada; 3 in Denmark and Sweden; Orange in Poland and Spain; Telia in Estonia and Finland; Telenor in Norway; Swisscom and Sunrise in Switzerland; Vodafone in Qatar; and select others.

In Asia, the eSIM feature can now be used with 1010, CSL, China Mobile and SmarTone in Hong Kong; M1 in Singapore; APT in Taiwan; Airtel and Reliance Jio in India; and AIS, dtac and True Move in Thailand.

The AT & T website confirms that it supports eSIM on the latest iPhones from iOS 12.1.1, while Apple's Web site continues to state that Verizon and T-Mobile will offer the eSIM service "later this year." We have heard from some people that Verizon may allow support on Friday, but this is strictly word of mouth.

It seems that the launch of eSIM functionality on iPhones is a success or an error as a MacRumors tips expert claims to have set up eSIM with T-Mobile on the new 12.9-inch Pro iPad, while others have been unlucky. The ball is definitely rolling, so we expect eSIM support to be more widespread later this year.

The eSIM, or digital SIM, is a non-physical SIM card slot that comes with the physical SIM card on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR to enable dual-SIM, a feature that allows iPhone users two phone available at once – useful for travel or personal lines and work on a single iPhone.
