The biggest improvement in the latest range of iPads is the incorporation of universal SIM. Apple claimed that this universal SIM card will allow users to effortlessly swap the networks.
It will save the customers from the hassle of changing the SIM cards. Users can easily avail this service with just a tap on their iPads.
Moreover, the biggest tech giant informed that all the major carriers of the United States such as T-Mobile, Sprint signed an agreement specifically for this purpose.
Recently, AT&T announced that it would not unlock the SIM cards of the brand new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3.
Moreover, the carriers informed that this new service is now merely valid for the people who bought iPad soon after its launch. The owners of those iPad can take the advantage of that new service
Unfortunately, T-Mobile also declared that customers need to remove a plastic case present in the iPad in order to change the SIM. The process is also applicable on all the new and old iPads purchased from the stores of T-Mobile.
It seems like Apple intended to make everything easier and time saving for its customers. However, the carriers wish to put some limitations and restrictions on the consumers.
Even before this announcement customers voiced out their complaints on different social networking sites and Apple Support Form. The buyers reported that SIM is still lockdown on their new iPads.
Although AT&T lockdown their SIMS but still other carriers states even then it is a trouble free task to switch the SIM.
