That"s the first catch, of course: only 10 countries support Apple"s eSIMs, namely Austria, Canada, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, India, Spain, the U.K., and the U.S. Even then carriers must offer compatibility too, và initially the only supporting U.S. Carriers for the XS & XS Max will be AT&T, T-Mobile, & Verizon. Sprint is planning to lớn back the technology, but doesn"t yet have a date.

iPhone owners will also need an update to game ios 12 coming "later this year," & a carrier"s official phầm mềm or special QR code.

Many people will already have a nano-SIM card from their main carrier, in which case adding a second number involves adding a plan khổng lồ the eSIM. If using a carrier app, the process is as simple as using that ứng dụng to buy a plan — in the case of a QR code, you have to open the Settings app, tap Cellular, then "Add Cellular Plan." You"ll be presented with an option to lớn scan your code.

Notably you"ll be able to use the eSIM in place of a nano-SIM, whether for a single tài khoản or several, but you won"t be able khổng lồ have more than one eSIM trương mục active at a time. For most people then, the best option will be lớn have a nano-SIM primary.

Once multiple plans are running, you"ll be prompted to label them. There are preset options like "Primary," "Secondary," "Business," và "Travel," or you can simply create your own. To change a label later, you"ll have lớn go into the Settings app"s Cellular menu, tap the number you want lớn change, then Cellular Plan Label.

You"ll also be asked khổng lồ set a default number, which is critical since it will be the only one supporting the full range of cellular services. Secondary numbers can normally only field voice và SMS.


The exception is an option lớn relegate a secondary line to data only, which may be useful for traveling — this will let people điện thoại tư vấn or message you at your main number but avoid exorbitant roaming fees with a local SIM card. Be warned that in addition lớn voice và SMS, iMessage and FaceTime will still go lớn your primary, which could rack up data fees.


Once you"ve got things up & running, you can switch numbers before dialing in the Phone tiện ích by tapping the current one directly from the keypad, or else hitting the "i" button first when you"re browsing Favorites. Picking an SMS number is similar, but you tap the number after starting a new conversation & selecting a contact.

Changing the line for iMessage & FaceTime is more complicated, as you have to go into Settings, Messages, và then iMessage & FaceTime Line. The selected choice is permanent until you reverse it.

There"s one last thing lớn note, which is game ios 12"s status bar info. You"ll normally only see signal strength for one line at a time, but you can see how a secondary is doing by opening up Control Center.


The first wave of preorders for the iPhone XS và XS Max is underway. Quick-trigger buyers should see their orders delivered Sept. 21.

Thanks for this. I have been wondering how it would work, although it"s one of those features I likely won"t have a need for.My wife currently carries around 2 iPhones, 1 for work and 1 personal. She would love khổng lồ upgrade and use the eSIM for her work number but I imagine that won"t go over well with work. Her work iPhone is a managed device & I highly doubt they"ll want her using her personal device for what she normally uses her work device for & basically losing control of if. We"ll see...
