How to set up and use Dual SIM on iPhone 13

Apple offers support for Dual SIM on iPhone 13 series. Users can add either one nano-SIM and one eSIM or two active eSIMs in their iPhone 13 models, exclusively. Older models like iPhone 12 series, iPhone 11 series, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR support Dual SIM with a nano-SIM and an eSIM, not two active eSIMs.

Having two SIMs active on a single device, simultaneously, removes the need to carry two separate phones with two active numbers and it is very useful, especially for business owners, professionals who want to keep the separate numbers for personal and client contacts, and travelers who will not be required to pay hefty roaming charges. Here is a comprehensive guide on how you can add and use Dual SIM on iPhone 13 models.
