When Apple launched iOS 12.1, it welcomed the addition of dual SIM support by way of the company’s eSIM feature within its newest iPhones.
And while that feature is not ready to go for the major wireless carriers in the United States, other network options are giving the green light to the feature. Today, for instance, the short-term data allowance network, GigSky, has updated its iOS app to support the eSIM functionality within the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. Here’s the app’s changelog, which also includes some unspecified improvements to the user interface and general bug fixes:
- Support for eSIM on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.
- UI improvements and Bug fixes.
GigSky is designed to offer up limited-time access to a mobile network so you don’t have to rely on your primary network or finding a WiFi connection. You can buy data access in “North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America/Caribbean, Middle East/Africa or an individual country” within the GigSky app (there is a link to download the app at the bottom of this article).
And here is how it works on Apple’s newest iPhones:
- Requires iOS 12.1 or later.
- Download the app and add a cellular data only plan
- Create an account and pay with Apple Pay or add a payment method.
- Built in data connectivity on Dual SIM will activate the eSIM “cellular data only” plan
- Data bundles allow data use in multiple countries or an individual country.
- Flexible pay-as-you-go plans for daily use or to use for up to 30 days.
- No contracts, monthly recurring charges, or subscriptions required.
