There's a lot of competition out there right now among the major cell service providers in the country. It seems like each service is offering price cuts or cheap data plans to steal customers away from the competition, and it's causing a lot of people to think about switching providers so they can take advantage of the latest deals.

But, switching can still be tough because many smartphones are tied to the provider you bought them from. Apple is trying to change that with a new feature on the brand new iPad Air 2.

Apple's new iPad Air 2 will feature a SIM card that'll work between multiple carriers in the U.S. and U.K., including Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T. That means if you buy your iPad Air 2 through those providers, it'll be easy to switch to one of the other company's plans later on.

This one SIM is currently compatible with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in the U.S., and EE in the UK. That list will presumably expand in time, as carriers realize that not being one of the available options is probably bad for business.
