    I only care that they finally support dual sim somewhat.
    Now time to wait til the local carriers support eSim and then I might finally try using an IPhone.

    Always like the icloud implementation, now adding dual sim.... Need better battery life now and this is for all mobile phones.

    Battery life is pretty good on recent (2 years or so) flagship phones.

    Bet you it will be Flow supporting eSIM first. But Iím not sure about how this looks set to work. Seems eSIM has to be the sole line, one of choice of accounts, or the second lne if you use a nano SIM. Could be reading wrong.

    Apossible bonus is eSIM might work on Pixel3/Pixel 3 XL if this support catches on

    My limited understanding on it is that they will use a single physical SIM in addition to an eSIM to facilitate Dual Sim Dual Standby. The models in China will use dual physical SIMs.

    Welcome to 2000 Apple. Or 2010 when most major manufacturers started to do it. I have even seen triple SIM phones. Why though - no idea.

    Some history of multi-SIM phones.

    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    Yeah, they're a few years behind competitors with some of the technology but their stuff still sells well (albeit pricey) and man their eco-system works well together.

    There was a brief window where they actually had cheaper. Think it was 6S that was actually less than Galaxy S7. Both started at 32GB. This now shattered with the X lines.

    I thought XS Max base would be 128GB at least for the price.

    I disagree that their ecosystem works well together though. Stick with me here. It works if you wish to utilize it in the narrow view they have of use cases. Recently discovered after syncing iBooks to cloud, that I no longer had local copy on original device. This isn’t how Notes, bookmarks, or browsing history work. If one turns off iCloud, they get to keep local copy. In order to offline any Apple Music, one has to enable iCloud Library. Again any local created playlist gets whisked into iCloud and is lost if cancel Apple Music subscription.

    ah yes, I see your perspective. I donít use it for Apple Music (I use Spotify) nor for syncing iBooks so didnít have those issues and so yes those are not good use cases. I only use their ecosystem for the usual contacts, calendar, iMessage, photos etc

    I use Spotify as well, but I did try out Apple Music. Lost several playlists when I didn't continue after trial period.
    As for iBooks (now Apple Books), I mostly send PDFs to it for saving and reading at my leisure.

    I'm certain there are other examples where what Apple expects, and even Google as well, doesn't align with every user. Most, perhaps, but not all.
