eSIM for iPhone XS, XS MAX and XR

eSIM for iPhone XS, XS MAX and XR

I have an AT&T nano-SIM card and another nano-SIM card with Chinese carrier. I learned that the unlocked iphone Xs MAX can have a nano-SIM and an eSIM working together. But the Chinese carrier didn't support eSIM. So I want to transform my AT&T nano-SIM card into eSIM so that my two phone number can both work on the iphone. How can I change my AT&T nano-SIM card to eSIM?

Re: eSIM for iPhone Xs MAX

No one has a clue how to activate the eSIM. Or even if SIM1 or SIM2 is the esim.

Thats because they cannot be used/activated yet.  Once Apple allows it, instructions will be passed around.

Re: eSIM for iPhone Xs MAX

Read an article that Deutsche Telekom users on IOS 12.1 beta 1 have been able to activate it. See link below

Dual SIM Support

Does AT&T offer Dual SIM support right now, or will it be later after the official release of iOS 12.1?

Re: Dual SIM Support

Apple has not updated software to allow the eSim to function.  When they do, it would be possible to use both Sims

Re: Iphone new dual sim model

No us carrier has.  I don't think you will see the us carriers do a thing till they officially release it.  A beta is just that a beta.  They add and remove features from betas all the time group FaceTime is a example of that.

eSIM for iPhone Xs MAX

Hello, I have an iPhone XS Max with iOS 10.2 that supports eSIM.

ATT postpaid account. I called Att the rep was going over the activation the call got disconnected, then I called a few times and they say it not supported yet. 

 

Can someone confirms if Att is currently supporting eSIM for iPhone? If so, how can it be configured? 

 

Thanks.

Re: eSIM for iPhone Xs MAX

No....  Apple has it in beta only. It's not official or rolled out.  No us carriers are supporting it yet.
