Updating the software of your card reader
Having the latest software improves Bluetooth and overall stability of the card reader.
- Make sure that the card reader and your smartphone or tablet are charged before you update the software.
- Keep the smartphone or tablet close to the card reader during the update.
- Make sure that the iZettle Reader is connected to your smartphone or tablet.
- Open your iZettle Go app.
- Go to “Settings“ and then to "Card readers“.
- Tap the green button saying “Update reader”. This button only appears when an update is available. It might take a few seconds for the button to appear.
The update usually takes around 2-3 minutes for the iZettle Reader and 10 minutes for the Pro Contactless.
- The app will inform you when the card machine has been successfully updated, and is then ready to be used again.
