The NHS COVID-19 app is no longer in use and the Isle of Wight trial has now ended. This is archived information from 18 June 2020. If you still have the app, please uninstall it.
The app is supported on Android and Apple (iOS) phones. The app currently supports Apple iOS versions 11 and higher, and Android versions 8 and higher. We are looking to support earlier versions of these operating systems in future where possible.
You can check whether your phone is on the current list of phones that have been successfully tested with the app on our technical support page. This is continually updated.
