eSIM finally on the horizon

In the early hours of this morning my iPhone XS Max prompted me to ‘update carrier settings’. It is now on ‘O2 36.2’.

At the same time, I noticed that when going to the Apple Watch app to ‘Set Up Mobile Data’ I was taken to an o2 branded screen that says: “Sorry, we don’t support Apple Watch right now”.

I believe this is a change to the system prompt that wouldn’t let you go any further.

So eSIM and possibly Apple Watch support could be coming soon.

@joeobrien  Our admin @Chris_K would be the person who would know, but don't get your hopes too high.

Hey guys,

Sorry for any confusion or excitement caused, but these kinds of carrier updates happen regularly throughout the year and is quite normal. This latest update doesn’t enable eSIM for iPhone. If or when there are any updates to share on this though, we'll let everyone know.

We are planning to range more eSIM enabled devices on our network but I don't have any ETA to share, and can’t share any further detail at this stage. If or when there's more info to share, I will thumbsup

Re: eSIM finally on the horizon

They are now available I should know as I moved over to an ESIM with o2 on my iPhone XS Max today. Process was very quick!
