Step 1Find your model below to locate the SIM tray. To pop open the SIM tray, gently insert a paper clip or a SIM-eject tool into the hole beside the tray.
Only cellular-capable iPads have SIM trays. If you have one, here is where you can find your SIM tray:
- Original iPad: Along the left side of the iPad towards the middle, opposite the side that contains the mute switch and volume buttons, near the bottom
- iPad 2/3/4: Along the left side of the iPad, opposite the side that contains the mute switch and volume buttons, near the top
- iPad Pro/Air/Air2/mini (all generations): On the bottom right side of the iPad, the same side that contains the mute switch and volume buttons
Step 2Apply a small amount of pressure until the SIM tray pops out of the iPhone or iPad. Don't apply pressure at an angle, only in the direction of the pinhole. If you're having difficulty ejecting the SIM tray, take your device to your carrier or an Apple Store for assistance.
Step 3Grab hold of the SIM tray and pull straight out.
Step 4After you remove your SIM card from the tray, swap your SIM card. Place the new SIM card into the tray. It will fit only one way, because of the notch. Make sure you have installed the SIM in the correct orientation by aligning the notched corners on the card.
