iPad SIM cards explained

A SIM card is vital if you want to make the most of your iPad and get online and download fresh content while you’re on the go.

With a wide range of pay as you go and pay monthly iPad SIM card deals to choose from, here we’ll walk you through what each one offers to help you find the right iPad SIM card deal for your needs.

Why do I need a special iPad SIM card?

Unlike dongles and most mobile broadband enabled laptops, iPads use SIM card called a microSIM or a NanoSIM, with the former having been replaced by the latter in newer iPad models. If you own an iPad mini or iPad air, it's an NanoSIM that you need. All other models require a microSIM.

Both of these are smaller than standard SIM cards and use newer SIM technology. One consequence of this is that you won’t be able to use your existing dongle and SIM with it in order to get online.

iPad SIM cards are placed directly in the iPad, which means there's no need to carry around a dongle.

Choosing an iPad SIM card deal

Once you've established whether you need a microSIM or NanoSIM, the fundamental question you need to ask when selecting an iPad SIM card deal is how much you plan to use mobile broadband on the device. If you’re a fairly heavy user, it’s a good idea to opt for a pay monthly deal, which will offer a higher usage limit.

Conversely, lighter web users may prefer to simply add credit on a pay as you go basis. Getting the right SIM card for iPad offer hinges completely on your usage, so make you're honest when assessing your needs.

UK iPad SIM Cards & mobile broadband providers

Most of the major UK mobile broadband suppliers now offer a wide range of affordable iPad SIM cards. These are O2, Three, Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile.

Which carriers’ deals for iPad SIM cards are the best?

This largely depends on your usage habits, which will surely determine which mobile broadband provider’s deals are best for you. However, before you sign up for any of them, it’s a good idea to check which of the three iPad SIM card deal providers offers the best and most extensive coverage in your area.

One other factor that may sway your choice is the fact that some providers include free WiFi access when you take out an iPad SIM card deal with them. Some networks offer unlimited WiFi access via hotspots across the UK operated by BT Openzone and The Cloud. However, some of these are limited to pay monthly customers.
