The first telco in the UAE to offer dual SIM support on the new iPhones.

Just in time for the iOS 12.1 update that enables dual SIM compatibility on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max thought eSIM technology. eSIM forgoes the use of a standard physical SIM card and instead is enabled on the carrier side. On the latest iPhones, dual SIM will be supported through eSIM and a standard nano-SIM card.

Etisalat customers will be the first to enjoy dual SIM compatibility on their iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. This comes a few months after Etisalat also introduced cellular connectivity on the Apple Watch Series 3, which is also supported on the current Series 4 model.

A couple of weeks ago, Du also confirmed support on eSIM before the end of October, but no announcement has been made as of press time.
