ARKit Device Compatibility

With iOS 11 around the corner and the release of ARKit, maybe like me you’re starting to wonder if your device will be compatible. According to Apple, devices that have an A9 or A10 chip will be able to run ARKit. For those of us who don’t have this information memorised, let’s take a quick look at what devices this applies to.

Compatible ARKit Devices

  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPad Pro (9.7, 10.5 or 12.9)
  • iPad (2017)

So if you want to run ARKit apps when iOS 11 is released, but don’t already own one of the above devices, it might be worth considering an upgrade or waiting for the iPhone 8 (fall 2017).

As a side note, people are already creating some awesome apps with ARKit. Check out if you want to see more!
