It is known that Apple has equipped its new tablet iPad Air 2 and 3 mini SIM-cards of a new type. During the announcement of this important fact has been given little attention, but now the information appeared on the site Apple.
The new SIM-card is called the Apple SIM. It is interesting because it is not tied to a particular operator and tariff plan – they can be set up by means of special settings that are displayed on the screen. Apple SIM cards are available so far only in the United States and the United Kingdom.
In the United States, you can choose between the operators AT T, Sprint and T-Mobile (not Verizon), and in the UK Apple SIM card is compatible with the networks of the operator EE. At the same time, Apple SIM can not be purchased separately and installed, for example, in the old model iPad – such SIM-card are available only in conjunction with the new tablet.
As stated on the site Apple, while traveling, too, you can choose a local operator and a more favorable rate in the region. It is not clear when it is planned to expand the geography of sales Apple SIM.
