Using HashPack on an iOS device

January 18, 2022

HashPack iOS app is launching soon!

One question we frequently get asked at HashPack is: Can I use HashPack on my iOS device? Absolutely!

HashPack works great on iOS devices with our browser-based web app. We also have a dedicated Android app and Chrome extension. Our iOS app is coming soon.

In the meantime you can use HashPack on your iOS device as a progressive web application (PWA). This means you can add an icon to your home screen like you would a normal iOS app.

Connecting to Hedera dApps is not optimised for Safari. We'd recommend using Chrome on iOS devices for the best experience when using HashConnect with Hedera dApps. If you'd still like to use HashPack as a PWA on Safari then read the guide below.

How to use HashPack as a PWA

We've put together this simple guide to show you how to use HashPack as a PWA. For best results, please make sure your mobile device is updated to the latest version (Apple iOS 15.6+).

Launch the HashPack web app on your iOS device. To use HashPack as a PWA you must use Safari on iOS.

Using iOS on Safari, tap the bookmark icon (bottom centre).

Choose Add to Home Screen.

Finally, click Add.

HashPack should now appear on your home screen like a normal iOS app. Please note the first time you use the HashPack PWA you'll need to choose a new password and create or import your account.
