If you haven’t been following the latest news from the Apple world, this year’s crop of iPhones (XR, XS, XS Max) now have dual SIM support — kindof; only in China does the XS Max actually take two physical SIMs, all other models have one SIM slot and one embedded digital SIM, which is called an “eSIM.”
The functionality is available once you update to iOS 12.1, and GigSky is first out of the gate with support:
SAN FRANCISCO, November 8, 2018 – GigSky, Inc., a leading provider of global cellular connectivity solutions for consumers, businesses and manufacturers, today announced worldwide availability of its cellular data service on iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR through eSIM technology. The GigSky app, available in the App store, enables users to easily purchase and activate data plans right from their dual SIM iPhone.
As the only data service offering truly global coverage, GigSky is celebrating with a special offer. For a limited time, new users signing up on iPhone can take 50% off one-day cellular data plans in more than 190 countries. The GigSky app lets travelers enjoy complete transparency into pricing and pay-as-you-need data, with service available in six languages, and gives customers the easiest way to buy data on the go with Apple Pay support.
“At GigSky we strive to provide our customers with the most convenient and affordable mobile data connectivity, wherever their travels may take them,” said Ravi Rishy-Maharaj, founder and CEO of GigSky. “iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, bring eSIM technology to iPhone, giving consumers choice with data plans like never before. They can maintain their home carrier service on their primary SIM, while using the GigSky app on their iPhone to simultaneously access affordably priced eSIM data that is best suited for their individual needs and travel schedule…”
You might recall GigSky from our Mobile #travel DataSIMs piece, and it’s held up well against the other options we’ve mentioned since; so if you’re planning on upgrading your iPhone this year, this makes it a rather compellingly convenient choice for your travel data needs, doesn’t it now?
