Does iPad Air series support eSIM?

No, iPad Air series, which includes models like iPad Air, iPad Air 2, cannot use eSIM. These devices are designed to work with traditional nano-SIM cards and do not have built-in support for eSIM technology.

eSIM is a newer technology that allows users to use mobile plans without needing a physical SIM card. However, this feature is only available in later iPad models, starting from the 2018 iPad Pro models and newer.

Although your current iPad Air series device is not compatible with eSIM, there are still two ways you can use this technology:

  • Use a special SIM card: You can use a specialized SIM card that can convert your device into one that supports eSIM profiles. This allows you to bypass the lack of built-in eSIM support and enjoy eSIM functionality.
  • Upgrade to a newer iPad model: If you want native eSIM support, consider upgrading to a newer iPad Air model that is compatible with eSIM. You can find a list of eSIM-compatible iPads to explore suitable options.

Please keep in mind that eSIM availability may vary depending on where you are located and the specific devices offered by your mobile service provider.
