IPAD and Android


I recently purchased an Ipad Air 2 wifi rather than the Ipad Air 2 with cellular. Is there anyway of connecting the Ipad to the Internet through an Android smartphone when out and about.

Secondly, do these wifi ipads not have options to add adapters in the future if need be for cellular / 4G ?

Any feedback on this much appreciated.

Yes you can connect your iPad 2 over a WiFi connection to your Android smartphone, provided that you have a tethering plan through your cell provider.

No, there is no way to add an adapter to your iPad 2 to connect to a cellular / 4G network.  You can purchase a WiFi hotspot device for this purpose, but you can't modify your iPad 2.
Ipad Air 2 wifi can only connect to wifi hotspots or WiFi connection to your Android smartphone if your smartphone allows it.

"Secondly, do these wifi ipads not have options to add adapters in the future if need be for cellular / 4G ?"

No, not at present.
