Which SIM card size fits your Apple device?

When Apple first hit the market with the iPhone 4 everyone had to scramble to get themselves a MicroSIM. The iPhone 5 took it a step further with an even smaller NanoSIM. So, with your iPad, iPhone or iPad mini, which SIM size is for you? EFTM has you covered.

MiniSIM, Micro SIM and NanoSIM

The iPad mini is a NanoSIM device. So if you’re moving from the 1st, 2nd or 3rd generation iPad to the iPad mini you will need a new SIM card

Apple’s other big shock announcement last week in San Jose was the new iPad 4th Generation. Supporting LTE globally (4G for Australia!) the 4th-gen also had an improved processor and the lightning dock connector. Interestingly, Apple did not update the iPad with a NanoSIM.
