eSIM, la inevitable novedad del iPhone 7
We don’t talk much about it, but when you buy an iPad with 4G connectivity you have the possibility of having an Apple SIM inserted, capable of working without problems with several operators in the world paying directly their data plans with our Apple account. Simply order it from any Apple Store and they will offer you the opportunity to take it with you.
Today there is news about the coverage of this Apple SIM: thanks to the collaboration and expansion of the operator GigSky, the coverage of this special Apple SIM has reached several countries in Central and South America, including Ecuador, Argentina and Colombia . A total of 140 countries can now be covered by this special iPad SIM.
The idea is to make it easier to connect abroad by skipping roaming
The other countries where the Apple SIM coverage is released are Afghanistan, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, Jamaica, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Isle of Man and the British Virgin Islands. The idea is to have total freedom to choose several operators in the area where we travel with that iPad, breaking the limits of roaming .
The Apple SIM, remember, can be used on the iPad mini 3 and 4, the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Pro . Obviously we’re talking about the WiFi+LTE models, since the Wi-Fi only models don’t have the necessary slot to be able to carry that Apple SIM. If you move around a lot, this option for getting data now becomes a little more attractive.
