Square Point of Sale Beta for iOS

The Square Beta Program for iOS allows you to test-drive our newest features. As a Beta tester, you’ll get our latest code updates and help us improve the Square experience for everyone.

To run the Square Beta app, make sure you’re running iOS 9.0 or higher.

To get started, download the Square Point of Sale Beta app and let us know what features you’re most interested in seeing with Square, so we can enable early access on your account(s) to features already in Beta.

Note: Because some Beta features are in active development, they may not be available on every device or account.
