How do I know if my iPhone or iPad is compatible with Square?
For a list of Apple devices that are compatible with the Square Point of Sale app head to our Support Centre. You can also check if your device is supported from Square's compatibility website.
How do I update the software on my Apple device?
We recommend performing software updates outside of your business hours. To update your device:
- Connect your iPhone or iPad to a power source.
- From the device’s home screen, tap Settings > General > Software Update.
- Tap Download and then tap Install > follow the on-screen prompts to complete the update.
After you have updated your software, you may be required to sign back into your Square account, so be sure you have your account email address and password in hand. If you don’t remember your password, you can reset your password from the app by tapping Forgot Password on the sign in screen.
What if I can’t update the software on my device?
If you cannot update the software on your device to iOS 11, you can still continue to take payments to run your business as usual, but you won’t be able to receive future updates to the Square Point of Sale app. To take advantage of the latest features and new products, we recommend upgrading to a supported device.
