Connect to fast cellular networks.
The new iPad supports fast cellular networks around the world, including HSPA, HSPA + and DC-HSDPA. So you can download content, stream video and browse the web at amazing speeds.
Use iPad as a personal hotspot.
For the first time, you can share the high-speed data connection on your iPad. If your carrier supports it, set up iPad as a personal hotspot to connect up to five devices — such as a MacBook Air, an iPod touch, or another iPad.
Ready to take on the world.
The new iPad offers the most comprehensive support for fast networks around the world. It's designed with two cellular antennas tuned to 10 different bands that access a larger frequency spectrum. That means you can travel almost anywhere in the world and get online. And your connection is always fast. Choose the iPad model with cellular data capability to connect to GSM/UMTS networks worldwide. If you want a local connection when you're travelling, just pop in a local SIM card.
No contract. No long-term commitment.
To enable cellular data service on your iPad, you need a micro-SIM card and a data plan. A number of carriers offer no-contract data plans for iPad, and you can activate service anytime after installing the micro-SIM card. Micro-SIM cards are available directly from carriers; contact your carrier for details.
Here's how to get data service for your iPad:
- Purchase an iPad model with cellular data capability.
- Get a micro-SIM card from a carrier offering iPad data plans; you'll select your data plan later.
- Install your micro-SIM card.
- Use the on-device activation process (where available) or contact your wireless carrier for activation details.
