iPhone XS SIM card and eSIM explained

Two phone numbers, one iPhone – on EE Business

Packed with lots of great features, the iPhone XS is brilliant for business. Especially on EE. Why? Well, on top of being voted the UK’s Best Business Network at the 2018 Mobile Industry Awards, we’re the first UK network to offer Dual SIM functionality.

So what does that mean for you? For the very first time, you can take and make calls with your business phone number and your personal phone number on a single iPhone. That means you don’t have to carry two phones with you wherever you go. Or remember to keep them both charged.

How it works – iPhone XS SIM card size

iPhone XS uses a nano SIM which slots in the retractable SIM tray. So when you buy an iPhone XS from EE Business, we give you a nano SIM to access our network. Then you can decide whether to transfer your old number to EE, or keep the number that comes with the SIM.

And if you already own an iPhone XS, you can take advantage of our great value SIM-only deals. After all, the best iPhone for business deserves Britain’s Best Business Network.

How it works – iPhone XS eSIM

The iPhone XS – alongside the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR – contains game-changing eSIM technology. An eSIM – or embedded SIM card – is a small chip inside your iPhone. It hosts rewritable data, which allows you to switch carriers with ease. You can even store multiple eSIMs on your phone, although you can only use one at a time.

We’re the first UK network to offer Dual SIM functionality on the iPhone XS. So if you’d like to order an eSIM deal, call the team on 0800 956 6100.

Two SIMs, one iPhone – the benefits

With the iPhone XS, you can use two phone numbers on a single device. And as we’ve already said, that eliminates the need to carry a work phone and a personal phone. But the benefits don’t stop there.

If you travel beyond the EU for work, you’ll know how easy it is to rack up large bills for calls and data. Sure, you can buy a local SIM card when you land, but who needs the hassle of switching SIM cards on the move? And can you imagine how annoying it would be to lose your main SIM?

With the iPhone XS, you can add a local eSIM to your phone to save you money during your business trip. In most cases, setting up your eSIM is as simple as scanning a QR code. Then you can access your apps, make calls and send emails without relying on wi-fi, or incurring roaming charges. But please be aware, you can only do this on devices that aren’t locked to any networks.

To make the most of the dual-SIM capability of the iPhone XS, you need to be on EE, Britain’s Best Network for business. To find out more, visit our iPhone XS page today.
