All Sky Mobile tablets provide 4G or 5G network connections. This allows you to utilize the iPad anywhere you go as long as you have access to a cell signal. When contrasted to a Wi-Fi only iPad, which can only be used where Wi-Fi is accessible, it gives you a lot more options for using your iPad in more places (for example, in the vehicle or on the train).

In addition to being able to use your iPad while on the go, your package includes unlimited data for watching Sky TV. You can also spread the cost of your iPad over time and update it at any time after the first 36 or 24 months.

Sky Mobile iPad Deals

When purchasing an iPad from Sky Mobile, you’ll first need to decide the tablet you want to purchase. Swap36 and Swap24 plans are available for every iPad (allowing you to upgrade your iPad after either 36 months and 24 months).

The table below shows how much an iPad costs on Sky at the moment:

Model Swap36 Plan Swap24 Plan
iPad Pro 11-inch (2021 version) £20/month £27/month
iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2021 version) £25/month £34/month
iPad Air (4th generation) £16/month £21/month
iPad (8th generation) £10/month £14/month
iPad mini (5th generation) £12/month £16/month

Once you’ve chosen your iPad, you’ll be able to add one of the following Data Plans to it:

Data Plan Monthly Price
100MB Data No extra cost
2GB Data Add £6/month
(free for 12 months on the iPad Air 4 when you buy it together with an iPhone 12)
8GB Data Add £8/month
12GB Data Add £12/month
25GB Data Add £15/month
40GB Data Add £24/month
60GB Data Add £30/month

You have the ability to alter your data plan at any moment (e.g. upgrading to a larger plan with more data, or downgrading to a cheaper plan to save money).

The overall amount you pay is determined on the price of your tablet as well as the price of your data plan. To give you an example, if you wanted an 11-inch iPad Pro with 2GB of data per month, you’d spend £26 each month (£20 for the iPad and £6 for your data).

All Sky Mobile data plans offer unlimited Sky TV app streaming and the ability to rollover your data for up to three years.

Customers who purchase an iPad Air 4 with an iPhone 12 will receive 2GB of free data every month for the next 12 months as part of a special deal that runs through June 10th. To take advantage of the deal, you must have both devices in your basket at the same time.

Sky Mobile iPad Features

Unlimited Streaming on Sky TV Apps

One of the biggest benefits of using an iPad on Sky Mobile is that you can watch Sky TV and use Sky apps without it going against your download limit.

Sky Mobile Watch is the name for this unrestricted streaming service, and it’s especially useful if you already have Sky TV. If that’s the case, you may watch live and on-demand TV with the Sky Go app from anywhere, and it won’t count against your plan’s download limit.

Your Sky TV subscription will determine the channels and material you have access to. If your subscription includes Sky Atlantic and Sky One, as well as free-to-air networks like ITV1 and Channel 4, you’ll be able to view them. If you have Sky Cinema or Sky Sports, you can stream these on your iPad, giving you access to a library of on-demand movies and live sporting events.

In addition to the Sky Go app, you’ll be able to access the Sky News, Sky+, My Sky, Sky Store, Sky Kids, Sky Sports, Sky Sports Mobile TV, and Sky Sports Box Office apps on your iPad without their counting against your plan’s download limit. Even if you don’t have a Sky TV subscription, you’ll be able to utilize the free apps that don’t require a subscription (e.g. Sky News on your iPad).

Data Rollover

When purchasing an iPad from Sky Mobile, you must select a data package (with between 100MB and 60GB of data per month). Any unused data will roll over at the end of each month and be stored in your Sky Piggybank. You can keep your unused data for three years and then withdraw it anytime you need more data on your plan.

On Sky’s 8GB data package, for example, you could get an iPad. The remaining 5GB of data will be added to your Sky Piggybank if you only use 3GB of data in a month. The amount of data in your Piggybank can grow over time (e.g. you might have 30GB of data in your Piggybank after the first six months).

You can withdraw 1GB increments from your Sky Piggybank whenever you need more data on any device connected to your Sky Mobile account. You are not required to return the data to the same device. If you have a Sky phone or SIM card, for example, you can use money from your Sky Piggybank to get more data on that device.

You can cash in your unused data for a Piggybank Reward as an alternative to withdrawing it. This might result in a discount on a new Sky phone, tablet, or mobile accessories.

Swap Plans

On Sky, you can get your iPad on a choice of two different plans:

  • Swap36 is Sky’s most popular tablet plan. It gives you the lowest monthly cost, with the ability to upgrade your tablet any time after 36 months. For example, the new iPad Pro is available from £20/month on Swap36.
  • Swap24 allows you to upgrade your tablet more often. In exchange for a higher monthly fee (e.g. from £27/month for the new iPad Pro). On Swap 24, you can upgrade your tablet any time after the first 24 months.

When you upgrade your Swap plan to a new tablet, you must return your previous tablet to Sky in good working order. There’s also the opportunity to upgrade while keeping your previous tablet (an extra fee will apply for this option).

5G Coverage

On Sky Mobile, you’ll be able to get 5G coverage if you have the new iPad Pro. This service is currently accessible in 193 UK towns and cities, with download rates five to ten times quicker than 4G.

When using your iPad in congested or crowded areas, you’ll benefit from a more dependable connection on Sky’s 5G network. There’s also less latency, which should result in a more responsive experience.
