of a small paper clip.

Important: A SIM card is required to use cellular services when connecting to
GSM networks and some CDMA networks. Your iPad is subject to your wireless
service provider’s policies, which may include restrictions on switching service
providers and roaming, even after conclusion of any required minimum service
contract. Contact your wireless service provider for more details. Availability of
cellular capabilities depends on the wireless network.

Sign up for cellular service
If your iPad has an Apple SIM card (available on iPad models with cellular and
Touch ID), you can choose a carrier and sign up for cellular service right on iPad.
Depending on your home carrier and your destination, you may also be able to
travel abroad with iPad and sign up for cellular service with a carrier in the
country you’re visiting. This isn’t available in all areas and not all carriers are
supported; contact your carrier for more information.

Sign up for cellular service.
Go to Settings > Cellular Data, then tap Set Up Cellular Data and follow the
onscreen instructions.

Set up cellular service in another country.
When traveling to another country, you can choose a local carrier rather than

Your Apple ID is the account you use for just about everything you do with
Apple, including storing your content in iCloud, downloading apps from the

App Store, streaming Apple Music content, and buying music, movies, and TV
shows from the iTunes Store.

If you already have an Apple ID, use it when you first set up iPad, and whenever
you need to sign in to use an Apple service. If you don’t already have an
Apple ID, you can create one whenever you’re asked to sign in. You only need
one Apple ID for everything you do with Apple.
