I am seeing a warning message that my device is unsupported. Does this mean my app will not work?
The warning message is there to indicate that the current system has not yet been fully tested or supported. While we cannot guarantee full app functionality until the release has been fully tested, clicking out of the warning message will enable the app to work. The warning message will not appear once we have fully tested the new app version. In the meantime, if you do experience any issues, our Product Support team will be happy to help troubleshoot to the best of our ability.
My device is prompting me to update my operating system. Should I update?
We recommend that you check your devices & OS compatibility before updating your operating system. If it is not listed as compatible, we recommend not updating your operating system until we have tested and ensured full compatibility.
Why is the app not compatible with the current version of iOS or Android operating system? (MiniMed™ Mobile app, CareLink™ Connect app, Guardian™ app, Guardian™ Connect app)
We are working with Apple and Android to test beta versions as soon as they become available, in order to ensure full compatibility as soon as possible. However, if we discover the new operating system has caused a change to the intended behavior of the app, then it may take additional time to ensure that the app fully functions as intended with the new operating system.
What if my device hasn’t been tested? Does this mean the app will not work? (MiniMed™ Mobile app, CareLink™ Connect app, Guardian™ app, Guardian™ Connect app)
If we have not validated the manufacturer of the device or the device is on an unsupported operating system, then the devices is not compatible and will not be available for download from the Google Play Store or App Store and will not work on your device.
If your device or operating system is an unverified device then you will receive an in-app pop-up message the first time you log into the app informing you that your app can still be used but it has not been tested. As a result, some information could display differently than intended and we recommend that you use the app with a fully-tested device. However, if you do experience any issues with your device, our Product Support team will be happy to help troubleshoot to the best of our ability.
I am experiencing a technical issue with my unverified device. (MiniMed™ Mobile app, CareLink™ Connect app, Guardian™ app, Guardian™ Connect app)
We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue! Your device has not been fully tested with the app and as such we are unable to guarantee the performance of the device. However, we will be happy to help troubleshoot to the best of our ability - Please contact our Product Support team.
How can I determine if my Android phone is compatible? (InPen™ app)
On your Android device, visit Google Play Store. If the InPen™ app is visible in the Play Store, install it. If the InPen™ app is not visible in the Play Store, the device does not meet minimum requirements to install the app. Once app is installed, Open the InPen™ App. Upon opening the app, it will check to make sure the screen resolution meets minimum requirements. If you are presented with a login screen, the app is ready for use.
Why do the Guardian™ app and the InPen™ app support different devices and operating systems?
The Guardian™ app and the InPen™ app have a different approach to compatibility and use different technology protocols, therefore compatibility is different between the two mobile apps.

The MiniMed™ Mobile app is intended to provide a secondary display for a compatible MiniMed™ insulin pump system on a suitable consumer electronic device for passive monitoring and to sync data to CareLink™ system. The MiniMed™ Mobile app is not intended to replace the real-time display of continuous glucose monitoring or insulin pump data on the primary display device (i.e., the insulin pump). All therapy decisions should be based on the primary display device.
The MiniMed™ Mobile app is not intended to analyze or modify the continuous glucose monitoring data or insulin pump data that it receives. Nor is it intended to control any function of the connected continuous glucose monitoring system or insulin pump. The MiniMed™ Mobile app is not intended to receive information directly from the sensor or transmitter of a continuous glucose monitoring system.
CareLink™ Connect app
The CareLink™ Connect app is intended to provide a secondary display of insulin pump and CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitor) data on a supported mobile device.

The InPen™ System is contraindicated in patients who fail to meet all criteria as determined by the labeling of the drug or medicine to be administered.
The Guardian™ app is intended to be used with the Guardian™ 4 system.The Guardian™ 4 system is a real-time, CGM system indicated for the management of diabetes in persons age 7 years and older.The Guardian™ 4 system does not require calibration and is designed to replace finger stick BG testing for diabetes treatment decisions. Treatment decisions should be made based on the combination of SG readings and trend arrows. The system can track trends in glucose concentrations, and aid in detecting events of hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia and helping both current and long-term therapy decisions.
The system is intended for use only by patients and caregivers using a compatible mobile device and operating system, and who have sufficient experience to adjust mobile device audio and notification settings. The system may require a prescription.
Successful CGM use requires sufficient vision or hearing ability to allow recognition of the alerts generated by the Guardian app.
Guardian™ Connect app
The Guardian™ Connect app is intended to be used with the Guardian™ Connect system. The app is intended for use by patients with a compatible consumer mobile device. The app displays sensor glucose data, and also provides a user interface for sensor calibration, entering data such as exercise and meals, and uploading information to the CareLink™ Personal website. It allows users to track patterns in glucose concentrations and possibly identify episodes of low and high glucose. The app provides alerts if a glucose level reaches, falls below, or rises above your set sensor glucose limits.
Continuous glucose monitoring is not recommended for people who are unwilling or unable to perform a minimum of two meter blood glucose tests per day or for people who are unable or unwilling to maintain contact with their healthcare professional.
Successful CGM use requires sufficient vision and hearing to allow recognition of the alerts generated by the Guardian™ Connect app.
