In this guide, you have a step-by-step walkthrough you can take when installing an eSIM on your iPad Device.
Before attempting to install the eSIM, there are three main things you will need:
- A strong internet connection - Ideally, you will need to be connected to Wi-fi or have a good 4G signal.
- An eSIM compatible device - If you are unsure, here's a list of compatible devices: List of compatible devices
- The device isn't locked to one Mobile Network - If you are unsure whether or not your device is locked to a certain network, have a look at our article on how to check if your device is "locked/unlocked": Locked/unlocked devices
- On your iPad, go to Settings.
Tap on "Mobile Data".
Tap on "Add a New Plan".
Use your iPad to scan the QR code provided by your carrier. If your carrier doesn't provide a QR code, you can enter the details manually.
Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the eSIM activation process.
Once the eSIM is activated, you can select it as your default mobile data or choose to use it alongside your physical SIM if your iPad has a physical SIM slot.
