With Apple SIM in selected iPad Wi‑Fi + Cellular models, you get the convenience of choosing a mobile data plan from carrier partners straight from your iPad — so you can stay connected when you’re away from a Wi‑Fi hotspot.1 Apple SIM comes preinstalled in iPad Wi‑Fi + Cellular models in some countries, is embedded in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and is available for purchase at most Apple Store locations.2 When you travel, Apple SIM gives you the flexibility to stay connected in more than 100 countries and territories around the world. So when you reach your destination and want to check your email, find directions or send a message back home, you can purchase a mobile data plan for the duration of your trip — whether it’s a day, a week or a month.
Apple SIM is embedded in the latest cellular iPads, enabling users to easily switch between different short-term data plans from select carrier partners without needing multiple SIM cards. This feature is particularly useful for iPad owners who are traveling abroad.
