PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 18, 2018 /CNW/ -- GigSky, a leading provider of global cellular connectivity solutions for consumers, today announced its service availability on the most advanced iPhones ever, iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. Both phones introduce Dual SIM to iPhone through the use of a nano-SIM and digital eSIM* and feature gigabit-class LTE for even faster download speeds.** GigSky will also offer eSIM service on iPhone XR, bringing the latest iPhone innovations to more people.
GigSky provides affordable, short-term mobile data plans in over 185 countries through its easy-to-use mobile app. The GigSky App paired with Apple Dual SIM, eSIM technology on iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR, will allow Apple customers to select and purchase a GigSky data plan as soon as they land in an international destination -- eliminating the need to swap SIMs, purchase a local SIM, hunt for WiFi, or suffer the burden of domestic carrier roaming costs. Once connected, the customer can immediately get online to access maps, search for restaurants, make video calls, and more while traveling.
"It has never been easier and more convenient to use the most popular device in the world, anywhere you go," said Ravi Rishy-Maharaj, Founder and CEO of GigSky. "Everyone wants to travel with their iPhone – it's what connects people to the world around them. Apple has hit gold yet again with the addition of eSIM on iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR. Travelers can now tap to purchase a GigSky data plan straight from the GigSky App and get online, without the requirement of a physical SIM card. We couldn't be happier to be part of this seamless, customer experience."
