Omnipod® 5 Device Compatibility

Omnipod 5 App Compatible Smartphones

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.
