With the recently unveiled iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro lineup of smartphones, Apple‘s latest installment of mobile devices comes with a first-ever feature. Up until now, every iPhone since the iPhone XS came with eSIM support. However, one could only use a physical SIM + eSIM to satisfy their dual-SIM needs. And that’s changing with the introduction of the iPhone 13 as Apple has now added support for two eSIM to be utilized at a time.
First discovered by 9to5Mac, a quick rundown at the iPhone 13 specifications page on Apple’s website reveals the new feature addition. Speaking of which, users can still use a physical SIM + eSIM combo if they prefer the old way. It’s just that Apple has made carrier-bound iPhone 13 activations (especially in the US) easy as the same will not come bundled with an actual SIM like it was in the past. All in all, this is a welcome feature set from the Cupertino giant.
As a heads up, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will be up for pre-order from September 17 with shipments slated for September 24. The Worldwide rollout will be completed in the coming weeks.
