    If the iPhone is locked to a carrier, the eSIM (Apple SIM) has to be from the same carrier as the nano-SIM.

    Sorry: rain?
    Maybe I don’t understand your question.

    This is what I meant:
    When you purchase one of these iPhones from your carrier, it’s locked to that carrier, and Apple’s eSIM can’t be used for a different carrier.
    When you buy the device from Apple, there’s the option to get it without carrier (SIM free) as well. You can activate it with any carrier.

    You don’t have to use both SIMs.

    No just one SIM card per phone I am pretty sure.

    The other SIM is a built in eSIM that can't be removed.
