Despite the belief that it would be ready for the iPhone XS and iPhone XR launches, support for eSIM technology was not present in the United States when Apple made its latest phones available. eSIM is required by users who could use two phone numbers from an iPhone and AT & T, Verizon and Sprint failed to get their ends in line in time for the big launch.
It seems that at least one of them gets a bit closer, with Verizon said to be ready to start in December.
According to an internal Verizon note such as 9to5Mac was able to obtain the Company believes that it will have dual SIM activations for both eSIM and physical SIMs ready by the beginning of October.
Currently, iPhone does not support the high-speed Verizon service when used in a Dual SIM configuration, and goes down to the 2G CDMA network rather than LTE. This was particularly problematic in certain geographic areas where Verizon has switched to offer LTE sole coverage.
As a result of these limitations, Verizon said it would not be to enable service on any eSIM or officially support Dual SIM activations.
At the launch last month, Verizon said they believed that the software's constraints would be resolved quickly with Apple's collaboration. This latest note indicates that it will stick to its promise and deliver eSIM and Dual SIM to iPhone XS and iPhone XR customers before the end of the year.
It is assumed that the December time frame will relate to Apple also releases iOS 12.1.1 and updates what apparently will make carrier support for eSIM a simpler proposition for U.S. networks. Although this is good news for Verizon, customers from other US based operators are still in the dark.
