With all that technology has advanced, it is not surprising that even iPads use Wi-Fi and 3G connections , which are mostly provided by micro-SIM cards, special to store different types of data.
The well-known SIM cards have a memory, which usually stores various personal information such as contacts and some extra files.
However, it is possible that you access this SIM card from your iPad, ejecting the container where the SIM card is housed. In general, this container can be found aligned with the side panel of your device, so it is necessary that when doing this action, you have a special tool, which helps you with its expulsion.
Here we will explain a little about this process, and the best way in which you can carry it out, using the correct methods and tools for this task.
What is an eSIM?
One of the things that we were used to before was that some older iPads had the ability to insert a SIM card in a traditional way, so it was not necessary to have a special SIM for it.
But, this is being tried to change, thanks to the arrival of eSIMs, since this technology gives us the ability to have a SIM virtually, so it will not be necessary to introduce any type of element into the device.
With this, a valid affirmation, that is to say that the card of our device is integrated into it, therefore, anyone can have a signal, depending on the operator to which it is affiliated.
However, it is worth, noting that the SIM card standard must be distinguished from eSIM of Apple, since they are responsible for providing users with the contract of certain contracts data plans, which are they can use inside the iPad.
What are the steps to follow?
- Start by looking for the tool that has come in your package with the acquisition of your device or if you do not have it at hand, you can use a stretched clip, which you will insert into the hole in which the SIM card is contained ; right next to the iPad.
- Here, you just need to press gently but firmly on the tool until the same container is ejected correctly.
- Once the container is ejected, you must proceed to remove the SIM card from it and, if necessary, place any other that you need at the time.
- After that, you just have to press the container inwards again firmly, so that it is adjusted in its position correctly.
