So here in the U.K. EE will support eSim when Apple launch it.With the eSIM, it will be embedded in the device and communcate with the carrier by implementing a profile and can integrate all other operators it supports. For example, you use T-Mobile network with the eSIM. You can manually set the eSIM or with the help of the carrier to activate it on the T-Mobile network. It will download carrier update etc and may add all its roaming partners around the world so when you roam freely. The problem may be the the little inconvenience to switch carrier than just swapping SIM card. The other problem is some carrier don’t support the eSIM yet.
Guys thanks so much for chiming in, because i started getting worried and was even planning on getting the HK version since my friend is there for another month, but would rather not due to warranty/replacement issues.Will work the exact same as a physical sim.
