Wireless Do more in more places.

Your new favourite app, book or film. Your next FaceTime call or iMessage. Ultra-fast wireless lets you access the things you love, straight from iPad mini. So more than ever, you can stay in sync and in touch.

Ultra-fast Wi‑Fi.

iPad mini 3 gives you lightning-quick Wi‑Fi performance thanks to two antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology. With dual-band 802.11n Wi‑Fi and MIMO, download speeds can reach up to 300 Mbps, so when you want to download a film, share photos or documents with AirDrop, or just browse the web, your connection is always speedy.1

Mbps VIA Wi‑Fi


AirDrop is the quickest and easiest way to wirelessly share documents and files with people nearby. Simply enable AirDrop in Control Centre, select a photo, video or document, tap the Share icon, and choose who you want to share with. Boom, the file appears on their device. It’s a lot easier than digging around for a USB stick.


AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream what’s on your iPad mini 3 via Apple TV to your HDTV and speakers — without having to log in to a network. Or you can mirror exactly what’s on your display and see it on the big screen. Whether you’re in the boardroom, the classroom or the living room, you’ll be able to share everything — from a business presentation to a history lesson to a holiday video.

High-speed LTE bands, at home and abroad.

If you’re out of Wi‑Fi range — in the park, at the beach, on the road — fear not. iPad mini 3 with Wi‑Fi + Cellular models let you connect to high-speed 4G LTE networks for faster downloads and easier sharing in more places.2

More mobile networks. More ways to connect.

On the iPad mini 3 with Wi‑Fi + Cellular model, 14 LTE bands are packed into a single device. So you can take advantage of 4G LTE networks for fast download and upload speeds practically anywhere you go.

One SIM. Many options.

The new Apple SIM is pre-installed on iPad mini 3 with Wi‑Fi + Cellular models. The Apple SIM gives you the flexibility to choose from a variety of short-term plans from selected carriers in the US and UK right there on your iPad. So whenever you need it, you can choose the plan that works best for you — with no long-term commitments. And when you travel, you may also be able to choose a data plan from a local carrier for the duration of your trip.

Create your own mobile hotspot.

With Personal Hotspot on your Wi‑Fi + Cellular model, you can easily create a mobile hotspot for other devices. For example, say you’re with some friends who want to get online with a laptop, but there’s no Wi‑Fi. You can come to their rescue simply by turning on your hotspot in Settings, and voilà, they’re ready to connect. And you’re the hero.
