Following a string of complaints across the globe (especially in Australia and the United Kingdom) regarding Apple’s branding of the 4G-LTE compatible iPads, Apple has tweaked the name of their cellular-connecting iPad in some regions. The new name is simply “iPad WiFi + Cellular” and this is a shift from the former “iPad WiFi + 4G” branding. The source of the criticism of the 4G third-generation iPad models is the fact that the 4G LTE only functions in the U.S. and Canada, on a total of five carriers.
Apple did not simply make this iPad name change in the affected Australia and UK regions, but they changed it in the UK, Australia, the U.S., Canada, UAE, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, New Zealand, Malaysia, Ireland, and Hong Kong.
You can determine the country by iPhone Model Number. Here is the list of country codes used by Apple devices.
MB123XX/A or MC123XX/A is the device code and XX is the regional identifier (or however it is called). This code you can find in this list:
- AB Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates
- B Ireland, UK, also used for some replacement phones
- C Canada
- CZ Czech Republic
- DN Austria, Germany, Netherlands
- E Mexico
- EE Estonia
- FB France, Luxembourg
- FD Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland

Official press release:
Russian antivirus company Dr. Web issued a report on Wednesday noting that hundreds of thousands of Macs are infected with the Flashback Trojan, with more than half of them in the U.S. alone. The attack takes advantage of an old Java vulnerability that Apple just patched this week. The malware self-installs after you visit a compromised or malicious webpage.
Apple is launching the new iPad in 25 more countries tomorrow.
The company's third generation tablet will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. local time on Friday, March 23 through the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com), Apple's retail stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers, in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macau, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
During the early Monday call, which outlined a surprise stock dividend and buyback plan for the company's $100 billion cash horde, Cook said that "[Apple] had a record weekend and we're thrilled with it." Apple also announced yesterday that it has sold 3 million new iPads in less the four days of availability.
It should be noted, however, that pre-ordered items are commonly not counted as sales until a transaction is complete and thus those iPads that are awaiting shipment were most likely not part of the final tally.
“The new iPad is a blockbuster with three million sold―the strongest iPad launch yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Customers are loving the incredible new features of iPad, including the stunning Retina display, and we can't wait to get it into the hands of even more customers around the world this Friday.”
Apple advertises the iPad Wi-Fi + 4G model as the LTE-capable one, but the radio bands supported by the device are not the same as those used outside of North America.
The iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G model you purchase is configured to work with a particular mobile network technology. Check with your carrier for compatibility and 4G data plan availability.
