I am recently considering to buy iPhone Xs unlocked phone which supports dual SIM system, the one is physical and the other is eSIM.
I wonder if Fido is able to support eSIM for iPhone instead of physical nano SIM.
If so, how could I use it and am I able to use current plan after changing SIM from nano SIM to eSIM?

How about now?
You realize that there's a disproportionately large customer demand for this right? This thing has been around since 2015 and your customers have been asking for it for quite a while.
You guys really need to make this a priority.
Since all phones are supposed to be sold unlocked since December 1, 2017 a person buying an iPhone XS should be able to buy the phone with FIDO as the main carrier and then go with another carrier, such as GigSky, for the eSim. It would be nice to get some confirmation on this from FIDO though. I am also looking to upgrade my phone to this model so that I can have the dual sim functionality.
Hey @nomadmtl! Congrats on you first post.
As much as I'd love to be able to answer your question, at this at the time it would be a hypothetical since we currently don't support it. If that changes, it may be a possibility, but no guaranties.
How can you not have ANY news on ESim - it's all over the news that Fido/Rogers now have ESim - just nobody at Rogers/Fido knows it.
@globalstar66 you are reading it wrong all those news outlet is making assumptions based on Apple's website. Last time I check Apple is not Rogers/Fido. Until Rogers/Fido officially announce support for eSIM everything should be taken with a grain of salt.
It's most likely they will and Apple just jump the gun and added them to the list.
