LTE Capable IPad Air 2 And IPad Mini 3 Have Proprietary SIM Card

By 12:35 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

Apple’s freshly announced iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 with LTE connectivity will be offered with proprietary SIM card solution. Dubbed Apple SIM, the setup will allow users to easily switch between carriers without worrying about changing the chip inside their slate.

The feature will be available for select carriers in the United States and the United Kingdom for the time being. Apple SIM is removable, so carriers can utilize a conventional setup if they are willing to. Curiously, the Cupertino giant made no mention of the innovative solution during today’s announcement of the tablets.

Limited to the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 for the time being, Apple SIM could have massive implications to the smartphone industry down the line. Should the manufacturer decide to include the functionality in an iPhone model down the line, we could well witness the discontinue of the SIM card as we know it.
