If you have an iPhone 7 or newer, you can use the new Square Reader for Magstripe with Lightning connector. As always, your first magnetic stripe card reader is free. You can order a reader from our Square shop and get started processing payments.
If you are using a device that does not have a headset jack, you can use the headset adapter included with your device, which enables you to connect 3.5 mm audio accessories, like your favourite headphones or the Square Reader, to the device’s main port (like a USB-C port).
We also recommend using the Square Reader for contactless and chip cards with your new device, as it connects wirelessly with Bluetooth LE. You can also accept contactless card payments, chip card payments and mobile wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay.
