Frequently Asked Questions

  • Apple Pencil (2nd generation). It attaches magnetically for wireless pairing and charging.

  • The Magic Keyboard and Smart Keyboard Folio are compatible with this iPad. They’re also compatible with the 11‑inch iPad Pro (1st, 2nd and 3rd generation). Third-party keyboards are also available.
  • There are two SIM options for connecting your WiFi + Cellular iPad model to a data plan: a physical SIM card or eSIM technology.* (Note: Wi-Fi iPad models cannot connect to mobile networks.)

    Physical SIM card: All Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad models have a physical nano-SIM tray that will hold a network provider nano-SIM card (also called 4FF SIM card). Your iPad may have a network provider SIM card already installed if you purchased it from a provider. If not, you can contact your network provider to obtain an appropriate card for your iPad. Some iPad models also support an Apple SIM card. For more information, go to https://support.apple.com/en-ie/HT203089.

    eSIM technology: Newer Wifi + Cellular iPad models include built-in eSIM technology that essentially acts as a digital SIM card. There are a few ways to activate an eSIM on your iPad, including downloading it on the iPad itself, scanning a QR code or using an app from a network provider. With eSIM, you can choose data plans from selected providers in the UK and in more than 180 countries and regions around the world. For more information on setting up eSIM, go to https://support.apple.com/en-ie/HT203089.

  • Whether you’re making a purchase or not, we’ve made it easy to trade in an eligible device either in-store or online. Just answer a few questions regarding the brand, model, and condition of your device. We’ll provide an estimated trade-in value or a simple way to recycle it.

    If you accept the trade-in estimate online when you purchase a new iPad we’ll arrange for you to send us your old device. Once we receive it, we inspect it and verify its condition. If everything checks out, we credit your original purchase method with any remaining balance.

    If you accept the trade-in estimate in the store, we’ll give you instant credit toward a purchase on the spot or toward credit you can use anytime.

    Regardless of how you choose to trade in, if the condition of your device doesn’t match what you described, a new estimated trade-in value will be provided. You’ll have the option to either accept this revised quote or reject it. If you reject it, your device will be given back to you at no charge.

  • Your estimated trade-in credit will be applied to the payment method used to purchase your new iPad once we’ve confirmed the condition of your trade-in device. If the trade-in value exceeds your purchase total, we’ll refund the difference on an Apple Store Gift Card. And if your device is not eligible for credit, we can recycle it for free or return it to you.
