AT&T Doesn't Play Nice, Locks The Apple SIM

By 03:21 Thu, 22 Jul 2021 Comments

Alongside the recent iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 Apple introduced the Apple SIM - a way to utilize just one SIM card and switch between carriers and their services.

However AT&T doesn't want to play along and will lock the SIM to only its services. Users have been seeing this disclaimer: "Once activation is complete this Apple SIM can only be used with AT&T. You will need a recent Apple SIM if you change carriers in the future". Well that's not nice!

This leaves the Apple SIM compatible with Sprint, EE in the UK and T-Mobile in the US, which seems the only working correct now in the US - Sprint may have some problems currently.

Interestingly if you buy a recent cellular Apple iPad Air 2 or mini 3 from Apple or an authorized reseller you'll acquire an Apple SIM preinstalled but if you buy it from Sprint, for example, it will have a Sprint SIM.

It seems carriers aren't really on board with Apple's one for all plan just yet.
