I currently carry around a work phone (iPhone Xs) and a personal phone iPhone X. Both are on the Telstra network. My work device has limited allowances for calls and data and my personal sim has just the right amount. I’d like to carry just the one device. Is there any news on when Telstra might allow me to have the option to ditch my iPhone X and just use the iPhone XS with an eSIM for my personal number?
Please make my life a little easier

No. There is no news available.
Your only option at the moment would be to ditch the iPhones and get a dual-SIM Android phone.
Will be interesting to see if Telstra supports it now Optus does.
Initially eSIMs in smartphones are likely to be relevant in markets where different network capabilities encourage people to use multiple providers.
In the Australian market, eSIM will grow in importance as the device vendors start to offer the technology as standard and the carriers uniformly support the technology in their systems, making it easier to activate new services and introducing fully on line activation options when the situation allows.
We will introduce eSIM support for smartphones in the future as customer demand builds.

Yes they will start losing loyal customers like me.
I gave up waiting and moved to optus when the new telstra plans released last month.
Threatening to leave doesn't achieve anything, just leave. Once the telstra execs start seeing it hit their bottom line, they might do something.
Had a Chat with someone from JB Hifi yesterday- looks like eSim for Xs and Xr is being released today. Will go down a lunch time and confirm. =)
I'll let you all know the results =)
Seems like only the training for them was released today, the local JB is awaiting the QR codes (why cant they just print them?? *shrugs sholders). 20th is the date i got as well as this person from this thread:
who's esim is it? I hope you have a better experience. We are shifting soon so it doesnt have to be telstra. thanks, keep me posted
