    Hi there,

    I have managed to lose the metal tray for my sim card like the ******* I am. I just want to know if there is any difference between the tray for the iPad 2 and 3, or even iPad 1. I can get my hands on the tray for either of the previous versions but am struggling to find one online for iPad 3 in my country (South Africa).

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know for sure, but it seems unlikely. The curvature of the aluminum case on the iPad 2 and 3rd gen are subtly different. It would probably not fit flush, if it fit at all.

    The iPad 3 is slight thicker. It's not a big difference, but I would not get an iPad 2 SIM tray without someone physically comparing the fit for me.

    Have you tried contacting Apple to see if you can order it directly?

    Which ever option was cheapest would probably be the way to go.
