While AT&T was the first wireless carrier in the United States to switch on eSIM support for Apple’s newest iPhones, Verizon isn’t too far behind.
Verizon has since confirmed that it is indeed switching on support for the electronic SIM card (or eSIM) in the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. This means that, for Verizon customers who have the newest iPhones, the dual SIM functionality should now be up and running. You’ll need to open up the My Verizon app on your iPhone and find the “Join Now” path within the app. Once you do follow the onscreen instructions to get everything running.
For folks who turn on the feature and have two numbers on their iPhone, you’ll find the network status for your additional number in Control Center.
If you are waiting for Sprint and T-Mobile to jump on board the eSIM train, it shouldn’t take either one of the other networks to get the ball rolling. Of course, having support at launch would have been nice, but that just wasn’t the case.
Better late than never, right?
