Connect to fast cellular networks.
iPad Air supports fast cellular networks around the world — including LTE networks.* So you can download content, stream video, and browse the web at amazing speeds. And if you’re in a location without an LTE network, you’ll still get access to fast GSM/UMTS networks including HSPA, HSPA+, and DC-HSDPA.
Ready to take on the world.
iPad Air offers comprehensive support for fast networks around the world, and you don’t need a long-term contract. You can sign up for cellular connectivity only when you need it. Some cellular carriers even offer flexible shared plans that let you use the data service you already have. If you want a local connection when you’re traveling, iPad Air is ready. Just ask a local carrier about a short-term data plan, pop in a SIM card, and you’re ready to go.
Use iPad as a personal hotspot.
Where supported by the local carrier, iPad Air can use its cellular connection to create a local hotspot for other devices. And the long battery life of iPad Air helps you stay connected for extended periods. So if you’re at the park with friends or camping with family, the cellular connection from iPad Air can keep everyone connected.
AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile,
Verizon, and more.
The iPad Air with Wi-Fi + Cellular model you purchase will work with a number of carriers such as AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon. While you don’t have to activate service right away, you should choose your iPad Air according to the carrier you prefer. Each carrier offers a range of data plan options. Visit your favorite carrier’s website to see data plans.
No long-term commitment.
When you decide to activate data service, you can choose the amount of data per month you want to buy — with no long-term contract. So if you have a business trip or vacation approaching, just sign up for the month you’ll be traveling and cancel when you get back. If you want a local connection when you’re traveling, just ask a local carrier about a short-term data plan, pop in a SIM card, and you’re ready to go.
No new plan required.
Your carrier may offer flexible shared plans that let you use the data service you already have — like the one you use with your smartphone — on your iPad Air. This convenient upgrade to your existing plan means you won’t need to sign up for a new data plan to get connected on iPad Air. Visit your favorite carrier’s website to see data plans.
