Superfast 5G has arrived to iPad for the first time, with the unveiling of the new iPad Pro. Making it the first Apple product to get 5G since first arriving in iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
5G will be available on all 2021 iPad Pro models which have ‘WiFi + Cellular’ connectivity. Offering substantially faster mobile data speeds when compared to 4G and 3G. Making downloading movies, sending files, backing up files, and more much quicker.
Now with 5G capabilities, you can connect to the fastest wireless networks when you need to download files, stream movies, collaborate with colleagues and upload content on the go.
The ability to connect to 5G does require a carrier that has a 5G network and a suitable data plan. At the time of writing, Optus, Telstra, and Vodafone are all rolling out 5G across Australia.
