Wi-Fi + Cellular Model
Back to top
iPad can also connect to the Internet using a fast mobile network connection when Wi-Fi isn’t available. So you can stay connected on the train, at the park or on a road trip. You can buy an iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular model without a contract and purchase mobile network data service separately. The Wi-Fi + Cellular model comes with an Apple SIM card pre-installed. Apple SIM lets you choose from a selection of short-term mobile network data plans - from carriers like EE* - that can be turned on for a day, week, or month. If you’re a Vodafone, Three or O2 customer, you’ll need to visit one of their stores to get your SIM. You can activate the Apple SIM whenever you want so that you have mobile network data service when you need it for the length of time you need it. And if you’re traveling to countries where there are carriers that support the Apple SIM, such as the US, you may have the option to connect to a local carrier while you’re there. Contact your carrier for more information. *Participating carriers are subject to change.
