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 15.2 and higher).
In this article:
iPhone 8 & newer (recommended)
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.
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”
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.
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.
