How to add a cellular data plan to your iPad

A step-by-step guide

A BetterRoaming data plan can be installed in just a few minutes via the settings app on your iPad. Find out how in our easy-to-follow guide below. Before you add a plan to your iPad, check that it supports eSIM - most iPads built after 2018 will. 

The following iPad models support BetterRoaming data plans: 

- iPad Pro 11-inch (1st gen or later)
- iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd gen or later)
- iPad Air (3rd gen or later)
- iPad (7th gen or later)
- iPad Mini (5th gen or later)
