While most iPad users connect to the internet via Wi-Fi, there are compelling reasons to consider an iPad with cellular capabilities. Unlike a Wi-Fi-only iPad, a cellular iPad provides convenient and stable internet access without the need to hunt for Wi-Fi hotspots.
Moreover, using your iPhone as a hotspot can drain its battery, a problem you can avoid with a cellular iPad. Additionally, having a SIM card from a different carrier in your iPad provides a backup connection when your iPhone’s network signal is weak.
