Connect to fast cellular networks.
iPad with Retina display 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 with Retina display offers comprehensive support for fast networks around the world. That means you can travel almost anywhere and get online. And your connection is always fast. Choose an iPad model with cellular data capability to connect to GSM/UMTS networks worldwide. If you want a local connection when you’re traveling, just pop in a local SIM card.
Use iPad as a personal hotspot.
Where supported, iPad can share its high-speed data connection as a personal hotspot. You can connect up to five devices — such as a MacBook Air, an iPod touch, or another iPad — over Wi‑Fi, Bluetooth, or USB.
Choose your iPad by carrier.
AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon.
Be sure to select the model that corresponds with the carrier you’d like to use for service. The iPad model you purchase is specially configured to work with one of three wireless carriers: AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. So while you don’t have to activate service right away, you should choose your iPad 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 contract. 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.
Turn on data service. Or turn it off. All from your iPad.
Tap Settings and choose Cellular Data. Then select a plan and enter your payment information.
Check your usage.
iPad lets you know when you’re about to reach your data limit so you can add more.
Adjust your plan.
If you want more data, you can sign up for a different plan — or cancel data service altogether — anytime, right from your iPad.
