Du and Etisalat are working with Apple to make dual SIM capabilities available to customers using the upcoming iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, according to media reports.
The phones – which were launched last week in the United States – all have dual SIM capabilities through an eSIM and nano-SIM.
On its frequently asked questions page, however, du noted that “e-SIM/dual SIM handsets will not be available in the UAE.”
Similarly, Apple’s website says the “use of e-SIM in iPhone may be disabled when purchased from some carriers.”
Citing both companies, TechRadar is reporting that both du and Etisalat are working with Apple to make dual SIM capabilities “available to customers in the near future.”
