Compatible Devices

This article contains a list of all supported iOS devices with additional device recommendations to ensure the highest quality production. For peak performance, we recommend using newer devices with up-to-date software (iOS 16.0 and higher).

In this article:

Compatible iPhones

  • iPhone 8 & newer (recommended)

  • iPhone 7

  • iPhone 6s

Note: Although the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 are technically compatible with Switcher Studio, we do not recommend them. These older devices may have WiFi connectivity issues, may not receive iOS updates, and have a shorter battery life.

Compatible iPads

Many customers prefer using an iPad rather than an iPhone as the main switcher device. Switcher Studio supports the following iPads:

  • iPad: 5th generation & newer

  • iPad Air: 2nd generation & newer

  • iPad Mini: 4th generation & newer

  • iPad Pro: 9.7”, 10.2", 10.5”, 11”, 12.9”

iPod Touch

The 7th generation iPod Touch is technically compatible with Switcher Studio. However, the camera is much lower quality than supported iPhones and newer iPads, so we often see customers decide against using it.

Older iOS Devices

Although some older iOS devices may work with Switcher Studio, the video quality and WiFi communication may not perform as expected and some features may be inaccessible. We do not provide support for devices not included in the list of c compatible devices above.

Non-iOS Devices

The Switcher Studio app is only available on iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones. However, there are ways to allow screensharing and webcam sources from computers and external devices using the Remote Guest feature and Switcher Cast application.
