iOS Device Compatibility

Unreal Engine supports iOS 7.0 and above, and the following charts give information about device-specific compatibility for engine features.

We have not yet tested all iOS devices but this table will give you an idea what features we expect to work well on each device. We plan to expand and refine this section as new devices are released and we broaden the devices we are testing in house.

These tables reference feature tiers as described on the Performance Guidelines for Mobile Devices page.

  • icon_success_16x.png Retina - We have tested the family of devices here and expect them to perform well at native retina resolution.

  • icon_warning_16x.png Non-Retina - We have tested the family of devices and expect them to perform well at non-retina resolution.

  • icon_error_16x.png Unsupported - We do not expect the device to perform well for the feature tier.
