- Global requirement: To work with the SDK, the device/browser must support WASM/WebAssembly.
- Android: All devices supported. Depending on device capabilities, users might be directed to 'Live Capture', 'Tap to Capture' or 'Manual Capture'.
- iOS devices still supported by Apple: All devices supported. Depending on device capabilities, users might be directed to 'Live Capture', 'Tap to Capture' or 'Manual Capture'.
- iOS devices no longer supported by Apple: Not officially supported. Our testing shows that running only the image worker succeeds, but running the metrics worker can fail on those devices. Users are directed to 'Manual Capture'.
