Does AT&T support eSIM quick transfer on iPhones?
I’ve been resisting getting a new iPhone because I really prefer keeping a physical SIM, but since Apple doesn’t seem to want to provide new phones with physical SIM slots (at least in the U.S., they do in other countries. Thanks Tim Cook!), it’s time to make the leap. According to Apple, you can use eSIM quick transfer while setting up the new phone from the old phone. I’ve done the Quick start transfer before, and my old phone is a 13 with a physical SIM, and the current iOS, so it possible, or will I have to go through AT&T to transfer/convert the SIM to a new 15?
I bought my phone from Apple, financed through Apple, and had to select AT&T as a carrier. I assumed that meant it would come with an eSIM installed, or waiting to be installed, from AT&T, but the pre-delivery email from Apple said “null” for phone number and plan, which suggests that’s not the case. I can’t figure out the purpose of Apple making you select a carrier if it’s not set up with a SIM.
