TMNL said it is supporting eSIM functionality on dual‑SIM devices such as Apple’s iPhoneXR, iPhoneXS, and iPhoneXSMax smartphones and iPadPro and iPadAir tablets. The operator is “currently experimenting” with the Apple Watch Cellular.

Several NatCos now offer an eSIM service, although there are still lingering concerns about exposing the virtual SIM cards to fraudulent activity (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #84 and #85).
