What it's for
You need an iPad to connect to the camera and control the scanning process (use the Capture app).
Generally we recommend you use the best iPad you have available (most powerful and most free space).
|Supported iPad Models||Unsupported iPad Models|
Matterport recommends the iPad Air 2 or newer.
Using an unsupported iPad can cause the Capture app to crash.
Purchase an iPad with the most amount of storage space that you can afford.
This is so you can capture lots of models and save them all. Then if there are future problems, you can come back and make edits very easily.
This is to scan several places and keep a generous margin on your iPad. Learn how to find out how much free space is available.
Beta or old versions (older than one major revision) of iOS are not supported.
Mobile data (4G/LTE or cellular connection just for the iPad) is not required to upload models. You can use WiFi from your home or office instead.
Uploading models to Matterport Cloud uses a lot of bandwidth. if you do use mobile data, keep in mind that your mobile data charges can be very large.
