Images show T-Mobile’s new eSIM app for iPhone XS and XR
One of the major new features of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR is dual SIM with eSIM, which lets you activate a second line onto your phone without needing a physical SIM card. The major U.S. carriers didn’t support the feature at first, but they’re slowly adopting it, and today we’re getting our first look at T-Mobile’s implementation.
Images that show T-Mobile’s eSIM app have made their way online today. Shared by PCMag, we can see that the app will allow you to activate a new prepaid line of service on your iPhone’s eSIM using the app, which means you shouldn’t have go into a store or anything like that.
T-Mobile is reportedly sending this app to its employees for training tomorrow, December 7, and it’s said that T-Mo is planning to launch it by the end of 2018. It’ll only support adding prepaid lines to the iPhone’s eSIM, at least to start.
AT&T began supporting the new iPhones’ eSIM feature this week and it’s expected that Verizon will as well, so it’s good to hear that T-Mobile is planning to roll out support soon. As I mentioned before, dual SIM support with eSIM is a major new feature of the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR, allowing you to add a second line to your iPhone for business, testing, or whatever other reason. And today’s images show that T-Mo will make it super easy for customers to add a secondary T-Mobile line to their iPhone.
