All iPads made after October 2018 have an eSIM, although you can still use Apple SIM, a conventional plastic SIM card, or Apple Embedded SIM to access GigSky service.
An iPad may be used to activate cellular data plans with Apple SIM, a nano-SIM card. In more than 140 countries and territories, we have you covered. If your iPad didn’t come with an Apple SIM card, you can buy one in the United States at Apple retail locations. I paid $4.99 for mine last year. Since they aren’t always on show, you might need to inquire. Additionally, the kits can be purchased in Apple Retail Stores in the following countries: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
Which iPads with Wi-Fi and cellular service have an Apple SIM?
THE FOLLOWING U.S. IPAD MODELS ARE USUALLY SHIPPED BY APPLE WITH AN APPLE SIM:
Model 9.7-inch iPad with Wi-Fi and cellular service (introduced on March 21, 2017)
12.9-inch iPad Pro with Wi-Fi and cellular model
Model iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular
Wi-Fi + cellular iPad mini 3 or later model
Which variant of the iPad Pro has an embedded Apple SIM?
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi + Cellular model has an integrated Apple SIM. This implies that the user cannot delete it. Additionally, it contains a nano-SIM tray for carrier SIM cards. We advise getting your iPad straight from Apple. The Apple SIM integrated in this iPad may be disabled or locked to a certain carrier if you purchase it through a carrier. The SIM tray, on the other hand, is still unlocked, allowing you to use it with SIM cards from other providers.
The status of iPhone 14 series SIM support in the US
The first iPhones to ship without a physical SIM card slot are the U.S. versions of the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The only source of cellular connectivity for the devices is eSIMs. All versions enable dual eSIM, enabling simultaneous use of two different cellular networks. To learn more, you should also look at the comprehensive information on 4G and 5G band support, however you can be sure that US-purchased phones will function properly in the US as long as your carrier at the very least accepts eSIMs.
On the iPhone 14 series, how to configure an eSIM
The new iPhone 14 series handsets can be configured using either the eSIM Network Provider Activation or the eSIM Quick Transfer procedures, according to Apple’s support documentation. An eSIM will either be given to you when you buy a carrier-activated iPhone or when you switch from another smartphone on the same network. If it’s the former, setting up your eSIM only requires turning on your iPhone and following the on-screen instructions.
The latter, however, requires that you speak with your network provider after configuring your iPhone in order to transfer your phone number from your old phone to your new iPhone. You will receive a notification that reads, “Provider Mobile Data Plan Ready to Be Installed,” once the network provider transfers your number. To set up your eSIM, tap the notification and adhere to the on-screen prompts.
