Omnipod® 5 Smartphone Compatibility

The Omnipod 5 Automated Insulin Delivery System consists of three parts: the Pod, the Omnipod 5 App and the Dexcom G6*. When you get started on Omnipod 5, you can access the Omnipod 5 App using the separate wireless Controller included in your first prescription or connect via a compatible smartphone.

*Dexcom G6 is sold separately and requires a separate prescription.


Below is a list of smartphones that can use the Omnipod 5 App to control the system. If you don’t see your device listed below, check back soon, we’re working to get more devices added to the list. You can still control the Omnipod 5 System with the wireless Omnipod 5 Controller, provided at no cost to you with your first prescription.
