T-Mobile launches eSIM support for iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR
T-Mobile’s support for eSIM on Apple’s new iPhones has arrived.
T-Mobile today launched its eSIM app for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. With this app, owners of Apple’s new iPhones can easily add a secondary prepaid line to their device. Just enter your email address into the app, select a prepaid plan, and you’ll be good to go.
Currently, T-Mobile only offers prepaid plans for eSIM on the iPhone XS, XS Max, or XR, but the carrier says that it plans to support postpaid plans on eSIM “in the future”. Here are the T-Mobile prepaid plans available for eSIM activation:
- T-Mobile One Prepaid with unlimited voice, text, and data, priced at $70 for a 30-day plan
- Simply Prepaid with unlimited voice, text, and 10GB of LTE data, priced at $40 for a 30-day plan
- Tourist Plan with 1000 minutes, unlimited text, and 2GB of LTE data, priced at $30 for a 21-day plan
The T-Mobile eSIM app is supported on any T-Mobile or unlocked iPhone XS, XS Max, or XR running iOS 12.1.1 or later. You can find the app in the App Store right here.
Some T-Mobile customers have had success getting eSIM on their new iPhone activated through customer service in the past few days, but it’s good to see the eSIM app officially launch so that everyone can easily add a secondary line to their iPhone. While it is kind of disappointing that T-Mobile only supports prepaid plans at launch, at least we know that postpaid plan support is coming. Hopefully it’s rolled out sooner rather than later.
Once you activate a T-Mobile eSIM on your iPhone XS, XS Max, or XR, let us know how it’s working for you!
