GigSky Offers Cellular Data Plans for iPad travelers with Apple SIM in more than 90 countries and territories

iPad customers can view and select a data plan right on their iPad when they travel

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
GigSky today announced that it will offer cellular data plans for iPad travelers with Apple SIM in more than 90 countries and territories. With Apple SIM installed, iPad customers can conveniently view and select these short-term data plans directly on their iPad, avoiding the hassle of buying a local SIM when they travel. US and UK customers have the added benefit of choosing from these short-term data plans at home. iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 Wi-Fi + Cellular models in the US and UK come with Apple SIM pre-installed. Apple SIM is also available at select Apple Retail Stores for individual purchase.

"We're elated to offer iPad users a new way to stay connected around the world," said Ravi Rishy-Maharaj, Founder and CEO of GigSky. "iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are thin, light and great for travel. Paired with GigSky's affordable mobile data service — easily accessible right from iPad with Apple SIM — travelers have the freedom to email, map and tweet wherever they go, without the usual challenges of connecting."

Now there's no need to pick-up a local SIM, hunt for Wi-Fi, or travel in fear of excessive data roaming charges. iPad users can choose a GigSky data plan upon arrival right from their iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 with Apple SIM installed, and easily connect to family and friends, stay in touch and share their travel.

iPad Air 2 is the thinnest and most powerful iPad ever. Just 6.1 mm thin and weighing less than a pound, iPad Air 2 is packed with amazing innovations — an improved Retina display with a new anti-reflective coating that reduces glare by 56 percent; all new iSight and FaceTime cameras for capturing stunning photos and videos; second generation 64-bit A8X chip that delivers improved CPU and graphics performance while playing games or working; and the revolutionary Touch ID, a simple and secure way to unlock iPad and access secure apps with just your fingerprint. iPad Air 2 with Wi-Fi + Cellular integrates even more LTE bands and comes with expanded LTE for up to 50 percent faster cellular connections, plus support for other fast cellular technology around the world (DC-HSDPA, HSPA+) — all while delivering 10 hours of battery life.

iPad mini 3 joins iPad Air 2 in offering the simplicity and security of Touch ID; both run more than 725,000 apps specifically designed for iPad and come in three gorgeous metallic finishes— gold, silver and space gray.

Apple SIM will also be available for individual purchase at Apple Retail Stores in 10 additional countries over the coming weeks: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.
