Does the iPad 3 series support eSIM?

No, the iPad 3 series, which includes models like iPad 3 Wifi, iPad 3 Wifi+ Cellular, cannot use eSIM. These phones are made to work with regular SIM cards and cannot support eSIM technology.

eSIM is a newer feature that lets you use mobile plans without a physical SIM card, but it is only available in newer iPad models starting from the 2018 iPad Pro models. This includes both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch versions.

If you want to use eSIM, you have two ways:

  • Get a special SIM card: You can get a special SIM card that adds eSIM functionality to your device.
  • Upgrade to a newer iPad model: Consider getting a newer iPad that supports eSIM. You can find a list of eSIM-compatible iPads to explore suitable options.

Important note: eSIM availability may vary depending on where you are and the mobile service provider you use.
