I wonder if someone can shed some light on this. I live in the UK but am travelling to Austalia for Christmas. If I buy a cellular iPad mini in Australia, will that work when I bring it back to the UK?

Obviously I will need to put a UK SIM card in there, but apart from that, will there be any issues?

Many thanks in advance Charlie


According the LTE page at Apple.com the model in UK and Australia should be compatible:

Model number:

iPad mit Retina Display (4. Generation) Modell A1460

iPad mini Modell A1455

LTE Band Support:

1 (2100 MHz)
3 (1800 MHz)
5 (850 MHz)
13 (700c MHz)
25 (1900 MHz)

For both UK and Australia. You should be fine buying the iPad down under :)
