Are Rogers And Fido Rolling Out eSIM Support?

It seems that Rogers and their flanker brand Fido might be on the verge something that for a change will make their users happy. According to Apple’s website, they now support eSIM. Here’s some snapshots proving that:

Weirdly, this other document doesn’t show that either carrier has eSIM support. I’m guessing that it has to be updated. Or maybe someone jumped the gun. I checked both of Rogers Twitter feeds and no mention of eSIM support there. Ditto for Fido. But it does make sense as one of the things that iOS 12.1.1 which was released today did was add eSIM support for more carriers. All Rogers and Fido customers need is some sort of official statement and instructions on how to make this work.

Watch this space for updates.

UPDATE: This is what Rogers is saying on Twitter when they are asked about eSIM support:

This despite the fact that the Apple website page that I referenced at the start of the article has not changed two days after this information was posted. You would think that if Apple screwed up, they would have fixed it by now. Thus one has to assume that Apple is sharing information that to them is correct. What further highlights this disconnect between Rogers/Fido and Apple is that this Apple webpage has been updated to match the other web page that I referenced at the start of this article. Thus you have to wonder what the deal is with Rogers giving responses like the Tweet above seeing as Apple is singing a different tune.

I sense another Rogers PR gong show in the making.
