Recommended Devices

The listed devices below represent some of the most popular being used with Vuforia Engine. Other devices that are not listed are still likely to support Vuforia Engine, as well. Find additional information for specific device compatibility with Vuforia Engine features in the table below.

The Recommended Devices have been tested and verified to work with Vuforia Engine. This list is regularly updated based upon new device usage trends, and Vuforia Engine releases.

Vuforia Engine supports vision-only tracking for features such as Image Targets, Cylinders, Multi Targets, VuMarks, etc. on devices beyond the ones listed below. Even devices that do not support ARKit, ARCore, or Vuforia VISLAM via Vuforia Fusion can support the above mentioned features.

Advanced Features, such as Model Targets, Area Targets and Ground Plane require support for Device Tracking using Vuforia Fusion. The Recommended Devices list only contains a subset of these devices - additional devices that support ARKit or ARCore may also support Advanced Features via Vuforia Fusion. Please check the ARKit device compatibility matrix, and ARCore supported devices for a complete list.

NOTE: Area Targets are only supported on ARKit or ARCore enabled devices and the Microsoft HoloLens 2. VISLAM enabled devices are not supported.

Other device and feature requirements can be found on the Supported Versions page.
