Verizon makes it easier for iPhone owners to activate eSIM on the fly
The My Verizon app for iOS has just been updated with support for in-app eSIM setup and activation, which means that any Verizon customers who own an iPhone XS, XS Max, or iPhone XR will now be able to enable a second eSIM line directly from the app.
AT&T and T-Mobile also plan to implement eSIM support, but at least one of them will do it differently. AT&T announced that in order to activate eSIM support, customers will have to scan a QR code obtained from the carrier, while T-Mobile is expected to launch a mobile app to handle eSIM support.
Unfortunately, if you're a current Verizon customer, you'll still have to call the carrier to finish account setup, 9to5mac reports, but if you're a new customer, you'll be able to add a new line of service directly from the app.
