Which Devices are Compatible with the Square Reader?

For the most up-to-date device compatibility information, please refer to our Compatibility Page.

Square Reader allows you to accept tap-and-go cards, digital wallet services on mobile devices (such as Apple Pay and Android Pay) and chip cards, making it the most innovative and advanced card payment device we’ve released yet. It uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to connect wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet device, meaning you can set it up practically anywhere in your shop.

The Square Reader is compatible with most Apple or Android tablets and smartphones that have BLE built in. If you’ve bought a new device in the last few years, it’s more than likely to have BLE, which is fantastic because it helps maintain a longer battery life (meaning more transactions through Square Reader and less frequent charging!).

If you are using Square Stand, your Square Reader can also connect via USB. This can be a great solution if your business operates in an area with a lot of wireless interference such as microwave ovens, cordless phones or fluorescent lights.

To make things easy (it’s kind of what we’re known for), here’s a list of devices that are compatible with the new Square Reader

Compatible Apple devices

Most Apple devices running iOS 12 or above will work. Square Reader is compatible with the following models:

Compatible Android devices

Square Reader works with most Android devices on the market, so long as you’re running Google Android 5.0 or higher, have location services enabled and have access to your Google Play account.

Square Reader is compatible with the following models:
