Bell will be offering Dual SIM on iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR when the feature is launched later this fall. Dual SIM offers the convenience of having two phone numbers on a single iPhone. Customers can have separate personal and business numbers, add an additional line when traveling internationally, or purchase a separate data plan. On iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, Dual SIM is a combination of a physical nano-SIM and an eSIM, which is a digital SIM that allows customers to activate a cellular plan without having to use a physical nano-SIM.
*iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are splash-, water- and dust-resistant, and were tested under controlled laboratory conditions with a rating of IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 2 meters up to 30 minutes). Splash, water and dust resistance are not permanent conditions, and resistance might decrease as a result of normal wear. Do not attempt to charge a wet iPhone; refer to the user guide for cleaning and drying instructions. Liquid damage not covered under warranty.
**Speeds vary based on site conditions and carrier. For details on LTE support, see apple.com/iphone/LTE.
***Dual SIM support will be available via a free software update later this fall. Use of Dual SIM requires two wireless service plans (which may include restrictions on roaming). Certain restrictions apply to use.
