Frequently asked questions

Yes, you can, via WhatsApp’s official desktop platform, WhatsApp Web. Once your iPad is linked to your WhatsApp account, you can start using it immediately.

The newest and most advanced iPad (as of October 2023) is the iPad 10th Gen, originally launched in 2022.  There are no plans to launch another generation of iPad in 2023.

As ever, this depends on your budget and what you’re looking for. If you’re keen to have the most creative and fastest version on the market, then the iPad 10th Gen is the tablet for you.

If you don't have a lot of apps or games on your iPad, 64GB will work fine. If you’d like to use quite a lot of apps and games, it’d be wise to consider getting a 128GB or 256GB iPad. If you plan to do any graphics-heavy design work, it’s a good idea to get a 512GB + model.

Whether it's for work or for play, a cellular iPad can be a game changer. Choosing a cellular iPad over a Wi-Fi iPad means you'll have the speed, reliability, and security of a mobile data connection, meaning you can use your iPad in more ways and in more places.

A totally new iPad Pro model is expected in 2024.

For many, the 10.9-inch regular iPad is the go-to choice over the iPad Air. The iPad 10.9 is cheaper and will do just about everything the average user could need. However, the iPad Air delivers more impressive specifications, including a faster processor, while also being lighter and thinner than the regular iPad. 

Key differences:

  • The iPad Air features the powerful M1 chip
  • The iPad is the cheapest model in Apple’s line up
  • The iPad Air has a 10.9-inch screen vs a 10.2-inch screen on a regular iPad

Aside from donating or selling your iPad (good news – iPads hold their value really well), there are plenty of ideas out there to help you put your old iPad to good use. Here are just a few of our favourites.


  • Mount it on the headrest of your car to make an in-car screen for your backseat passengers
  • Turn it into a security camera.
  • Use it as a second screen – always helpful
  • Repurpose it as a smart home controller
  • Turn it into a kitchen tablet – great for catching up on your favourite programmes, checking recipes and more
  • Make it a digital photo or video frame
  • Use it as an e-reader
  • Give it to your kids

iPads are unlikely to get viruses because Apple's mobile operating system (iOS) is highly compartmentalized. This means that apps are isolated from each other, making it almost impossible for a computer virus to infect the iOS system and spread within it.

You can connect Magic Mouse, another Bluetooth® mouse, or a USB mouse to your iPad. Note: Mouse devices are sold separately. Not all mouse devices are fully compatible with all models of iPad.

Emergency alerts can be received on iPads as long as they are connected to a 4G or 5G phone connection and have the most recent iOS or Android version.

There are currently 10 generations of iPad, with the next release expected in 2024.

No, iPads are not waterproof, and none have an IP rating. You can purchase a water-resistant iPad case to protect it from water damage.

Yes, you can. This enables you to connect to your cellular network for connection on the move when Wi-Fi isn’t available. 

Simply insert a paper clip or SIM eject tool (not included) into the small hole of the SIM tray, then push in toward iPad to eject the tray. Note: The shape and orientation of the SIM tray depend on the iPad model and your country or region. Remove the tray from iPad. Place the SIM in the tray.
