Frequently Asked Questions

  • The Apple Pencil (2nd generation). It pairs wirelessly and attaches magnetically for charging and storage.
  • There are two SIM options for connecting your iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular to a data plan: a physical SIM card or eSIM technology. *** (Note: iPad with Wi-Fi models cannot connect to cellular networks.)

    Physical SIM card: All Wi-Fi + Cellular models have a physical nano-SIM tray that will hold a carrier nano-SIM card (also called 4FF SIM card). Your iPad may have a carrier SIM card already installed if you purchased it from a carrier. If not, you can contact your carrier 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/HT203089.

    eSIM technology: Newer Wi-Fi + Cellular 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 right on the iPad itself, scanning a QR code, or using an app from a carrier. With eSIM, you can choose cellular data plans from select carriers in the U.S. and in more than 180 countries and regions around the world. For more information on setting up eSIM, go to https://support.apple.com/HT203089.

  • Apple Trade In makes it easy to get credit towards the purchase of your next iPad. Simply answer a few questions about your device. If your iPad is engraved, it may be eligible for trade-in. Based on what you tell us, we’ll provide an estimated trade-in value. If you pay monthly, we’ll apply the value as an instant credit to lower the monthly payments of your new iPad. If you pay in full, we’ll credit your payment method after we receive your trade-in. If it’s not eligible for credit, you can recycle it for free.

    Once you accept the estimated trade-in value quote, we’ll ship you a free trade-in kit. When we receive your trade-in, we’ll verify its condition and if everything checks out, your trade-in will be complete. If your device doesn’t match the condition you described, you’ll receive an email with next steps. If you paid in full and the value of your device was more than the cost of your new iPad, you’ll receive an Apple Gift Card by email with the remaining amount.

    The online trade-in process generally takes 2–3 weeks.

    You can also trade your device in at an Apple Store at the point of purchase; however, the trade-in value in-store may be different to the estimated trade-in value you received online.
