AOW is available to both international travelers and domestic users in select countries for as little as 11 cents per hour. AOW also offers a variety of plans for longer trips or heavy data users, like the 5GB plan valid for 30 days. Customers can buy a plan on their iPad with an embedded Apple SIM or an Apple SIM card in the tray. On iPad, users go to Settings > Cellular Data > Set Up Cellular Data, select AlwaysOnline, and choose the plan that meets their needs.
The Apple SIM is compatible with the newly announced iPad, iPad Pro, and iPad mini 4 as well as iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi + Cellular model features a built-in Apple SIM, and in some countries, iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular models come pre-installed with the Apple SIM. The Apple SIM is also available at select Apple Stores.
