Apple released iOS 6.1 beta 3 to developers today. The update enabled 4G LTE on iPad minis and 4th gen iPads on Zain’s 4G network. Zain’s 4G LTE band (band 3 or 1800Mhz) is supported on most global iPad 4 (model A1460) and iPad mini (model A1455) units as well as iPhone 5 (model A1429).
Attached is a screenshot of my iPad mini running iOS 6.1 beta 3 on Zain’s 4G LTE network.
STC and Mobily’s 4G LTE currently do not support LTE 4G band 3 (1800Mhz). We have to wait until these companies change their network to support these devices.
