Apple Debuts New Multi-Carrier SIM Card in iPad Air 2

Posted by at 2:15 pm on October 17, 2014

Apple has revealed the iPad Air 2, and along with it a new way to handle SIM cards.

According to Apple, the new Apple SIM gives iPad Air 2 owners unprecedented flexibility when it comes to choosing an LTE service provider. “Whenever you need it, you can choose the plan that works best for you — with no long-term commitment,” explained Apple. “And when you travel, you may also be able to choose a data plan from a local carrier for the duration of your trip.”

The multi-carrier SIM is compatible with AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile in the U.S., as well as EE in the U.K. The iPad Air 2 supports 20 different LTE bands, similar to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The carriers named by Apple have not yet discussed the particulars regarding no-contract data plans. There’s no word on why Verizon Wireless isn’t included in the list of U.S. carriers.

It’s possible that the Apple SIM will find its way to future Apple products, including its iPhones.
