The iPhone line 15 has finally been announced and we have already seen that Tim Cook has hidden some details at the official event. When the CEO doesn’t address certain features of the devices, it’s because there’s usually no news to be said about them. However, the new cell phones have gained improvements to the eSIM system that have also not been publicly addressed.
- All about the new iPhone cameras 15
From the iPhone XS it is possible to use an iOS smartphone with Dual-SIM, even in Brazil. This is because although the chip tray can only hold one card (except in China and other eastern territories), the device now has a virtual chip (eSIM). In this way, those who need two phone lines finally saw Apple as a possibility to reconcile their needs.
With the arrival of the iPhone 15, the cell phone now supports up to two eSIM numbers. This means that, if the user wishes, both mobile phone plans can be registered virtually, which would not require the use of any physical SIM.

eSIM in Brazil
In Brazil, the four largest telecommunications operators already work with Yes it is. We are talking about Claro, Oi, TIM and Vivo. The technology is the same that allows the Apple Watch LTE and other smartwatches to connect to the cellular network.
It is worth remembering that the support for two eSIM in the iPhone line 13 did not make it possible to use a third simultaneous line through the physical SIM. Thus, the user can use a chip in the tray with a virtual one, or just two eSIM. Of course, whoever is going to activate a single line will also be able to choose which of the technologies they will use.
