Tile is compatible with both iOS and Android devices!
Tile is compatible with the following iOS devices running iOS 10 and up:
- iPhone 5s or newer
- iPad 3rd Gen or newer
- iPad Mini 2 or newer
- iPad Pro or newer
- Apple Watch Series 1 or newer (Requires iPhone 5s or above with iOS 10 or newer)
New iOS devices will be supported as they become available, as long as they have Bluetooth 4.0 support. Please note that users running any beta versions may encounter app stability issues.
What Android phones will Tile officially work with? As long as the devices listed below are running Android 6.0 or newer, they are officially compatible with Tile!
- Google Pixel and Pixel 2
- Samsung Galaxy (S5 or newer)
- Nexus (4 or newer)
- OnePlus (One or newer)
- HTC One (M8 or newer)
- Samsung Note (4 or newer)
- Motorola Moto X (or newer)
There are many different Android devices on the market. If your Android device is not on this official compatibility list, that means we have not officially tested Tile with your device type. There is a good chance Tile is compatible as long as your device is running Android 6.0 or newer and has Bluetooth 4.0, but we cannot guarantee the same level of technical support in troubleshooting scenarios.
*If you are running iOS 9 or older and Android 5.0 or older, the latest version of our app that you will be able to download is 2.27.
What devices will not work with Tile?
Any devices that do not have Bluetooth 4.0 or BLE, will not work. These handsets do not have the hardware to communicate with our Tile hardware or companion app.
At this time, the application is only designed to run on mobile devices, as the community relies on proximity to a device in order to locate a missing item. We plan to explore enhanced capabilities later in our growth plan.
*UPDATE 10/14/2016: Apple's iPhone 7 running iOS 10.0 and under can only handle 2 Tile connections. iPhone 7 running iOS 10.2 and later connect to 5 Tiles. Please contact support if you have questions.
