iPhone Models That Support Dual SIM Cards

on October 27, 2021

Can your iPhone support dual SIM? If so, then read below for a guide on how to go about getting it installed and activated.

Dual-SIM enabled devices offer all the great features that come with having two phone numbers but they also have their drawbacks as well – such as needing separate plans or sending text messages between different service providers because each number uses its own data plan (therefore no sharing). But don't worry! With this article we'll show you what needs done in order get yourself set up properly before diving into Apple's proprietary Setup Assistant app which can take care of most things automatically if configured correctly beforehand by following our step by step instructions instead:

Many people have the need to use two SIM cards in their phone. Some of these people are expatriates, some are business professionals that travel a lot, and others may be parents with children living in different countries. Whatever your reason is for needing a dual SIM card phone, it's important you know which iPhone models support this or you'll end up having to buy or rent one when you could have just used what you already had! In this article we go over all the iPhone models that can handle dual SIM cards.

Wondering if you can use dual SIM with your iPhone? Now there are a few different models of the phone which support it, so keep reading to find out more!

It's hard enough to fit everything into one phone number. Sometimes, we need two numbers for work and personal use or hosting an international life with multiple SIM cards just isn't practical because they're too expensive!

The article starts by describing how sometimes people want more than one carrier when traveling so that their different schedules don't conflict with each other; this can be frustrating since most cell providers only offer single lines these days but fortunately there are still plenty of options available such as VoIP services which give customers access via computer instead (though remember: you'll always have inferior sound quality).

Dual SIM iPhones are not as common in the United States, though they're becoming more popular. You can find dual-SIM iPhone models on this list of Apple's current offerings for cellular telephone users who need two phone numbers or intend to use their device internationally at some point during its lifetime - but keep reading if you want an explanation about what these choices really mean!

What is Dual SIM?

Here are a few of the many ways you can use Dual SIM:

  • Use one number for business and another number for personal calls.
  • Add a local data plan when you travel outside of the country or region.
  • Have separate voice and data plans.
  • With iOS 13 and later, both of your phone numbers can make and receive voice and FaceTime calls and send and receive messages using iMessage, SMS, and MMS.2 Your iPhone can use one cellular data network at a time.

The iPhone is a great device for those who want to be able to switch between two different phone numbers. There are three ways you can do this: by using nano-SIMs or e-sim cards, having both active sims in at the same time with one acting as your main cellular data network connection; however more recent models allow users also use their second card separately from messaging apps like iMessage and SMS but they only work when connected via WiFi.

A nano-SIM card is the smallest form of mobile data technology. It's what you need if your phone has no room left on its internal storage for more apps or photos, and it can be purchased at any major retailer in 1GB sizes up to 32 GBs! The downside? Nano SIMs only work with phones which were manufactured after September 2012 because earlier models require differently shaped adaptors (spacers) before inserting them into other devices like tablets/ laptops etc..e however; these days there are many different types eiites made specifically by Apple such as iPhone 6 Plus+/-

iPhone Models Supporting Two Active eSIMs or a nano-SIM with an eSIM

In Apple's latest releases, you can now use dual SIM with either two active eSIMs or a nano-SIM. Here is how to tell which model of iPhone supports it:
I'm going into more detail about this in the next section but first let me just say that if your phone has an "e" following its phone number then guess what? You're good to go! For example, my old iphone SE had no problem switching over from regular ol'Cellular Data Plan (which came out as T-Mobile)to one where data was available exclusively through Wi*Fi connections - without any problems whatsoever on downloads speeds even during peak hours.

  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 mini

  • iPhone 12
  • iPhone 11
  • iPhone XS
  • iPhone XS Max

As of writing, the eSIM option is unavailable for these models if you bought your iPhone from mainland China. However, it seems that an increasing number of phones are coming with a sim card slot in Macau or Hong Kong – including some recent iPhones!

  • iPhone 13 mini
  • iPhone 12 mini
  • iPhone SE (2nd generation)
  • iPhone XS

iPhone Models Supporting Two Physical nano-SIMs

With the exception of mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau iPhones can use two physical nano-SIM cards. Here are models from those countries that allow this usage:

  • iPhone 13
  • iPhone 13 Pro
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max
  • iPhone 12
  • iPhone 12 Pro

Dual SIM on Locked iPhones.

If your device is carrier locked, you will not be able to use SIM cards from other carriers for the second slot. While this does mean that you can have two plans with just one phone number per channel instead of having different phones depending on where it's used in North America/Caribbean etc., there are some limitations as well: You cannot go abroad and switch over onto another mobile provider; nor should anyone else who has made an international call using this line (e.g., Canada) expect them to work after returning home since their network won't recognize these calls anymore due incompatibility issues between networks which often arise when people travel overseas during Casual Mode or Roaming.

If you're upgrading your phone with a new SIM card, check if the carrier supports CDMA. If not then there is no way for that second account on dual-SIMs will work with their network as well since it's based off of GSM technology instead which does not exist in CDMA at all!

If switching from one type of cellular service to another (e.g., Activ8tivities Ltd.'s Mobile Broadband Plan compared against AT&T Inc.'s Wireless Internet Services), be sure verify what kind or frequency bands are supported by each provider before signing up so they don't end up canceling.

 As you use your iPhone more and the ways in which we communicate change, it may be necessary for there to be a dual SIM option. It is possible that this need will arise sooner than expected so having access now could prove invaluable when deciding between one carrier or another down the road. The future holds many possibilities but if today's consumers want their iPhones fully-functional then they should consider getting themselves equipped with two different mobile phone numbers.
