Will PM support the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max’s eSIM capability?

Apple yesterday announced that the new iPhones will have an eSIM built into the phone. So I’m wondering whether PM will be able to use the eSIM instead of the physical SIM.

right now, there is no talks of PM using this technology. If anything changes, I will make sure it's communicated through the Community.

I doubt it because Public Mobile doesn't have VoLTE yet.

Come on folks, this is a tier 3 service.  This eSIM thing is bleeding edge.  Telus would purposely not roll it out here to ensure Public Mobiles place in the pecking order.  I guess I get a chance to say my favorite yet again.  This service is best enjoyed for what it is, not what you hope it to be.

According to Apple's website, only Bell will be supporting eSim for now: https://www.iphoneincanada.ca/carriers/bell/bell-canada-esim-iphone-xs/

Just use the physical SIM slot if you want to use an overpriced iPhone XR/S/SMax.

So far, according to the Apple website, only Bell is supporting the eSIM.

Telus and Rogers are selling them.  Bell was the first to agree to sell them, and use the eSIM tech in Canada.

As mentioned by others, only physical SIM is supported by Public Mobile for now.

VoLTE has nothing to do with eSIM.
