Apple is known to bring new products to its users from time-to-time. The last big launch iPhone 6 was a huge success that made the Samsung Galaxy S6 sales look so tiny. Now, Apple has brought yet another gift to its customers after the much-hyped and controversial Apple Musicapp- this time in the form of a SIM card.
For the iPad users in Australia, Apple has launched its latest sim cards that can be used to access the internet for as cheap as $50 for three gigabytes. Apple has partnered with GigSky for this venture.
GigSky chief executive Ravi Rishy-Maharaj said:
We’re elated to offer iPad users a new way to stay connected around the world. Travellers have the freedom to email, map and tweet wherever they go, without the usual challenges of connecting.
The internet plans are impressive in some countries ranging from a month to a few days service. Apple SIM users on international roaming will be able to use 3GB internet service for $50 in UK, Germany, Greece and Italy, whereas 1GB for $50 in USA, France and Denmark. For users looking for smaller plans, it costs $10 in India and Russia for 40MB for usage over 3 days. Similar plans are available for other countries as well.
This partnership between Apple and GigSky will allow the iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 users to access a GigSky plan in any of the 90 countries listed below.
The full list of countries supported by GigSky is:
Bonaire, Saba, St. Eustatius
Northern Mariana Islands
Papua New Guinea
Saint Martin (French)
Tahiti (French Polinesia)
Trinidad and Tobago
This collaboration would help the Apple users to stay connected to the world without having much trouble looking for a free Wi-Fizone.
