1 The max brightness was measured by AnandTech, DisplayMate, or GSMArena.

Note: Both Wi-Fi only and cellular iPad Air/Mini/Pro models are compatible. Only cellular models have GPS. You do not have to activate the cell service in order to use the GPS. The DJI GO app currently only requires GPS on an Apple device when using the Follow Me feature or to reset the home point to your current location if you've moved elsewhere after taking off. If you're going to use a Wi-Fi only Apple device, you could attach a Bluetooth GPS receiver (like one of these) to add GPS later if needed.

Note: When flying a Phantom, tablets wider than 6.75 inches (including the case) will require an extender to be installed on the remote controller mount. The iPad Air will fit without case. This extender is designed well and will securely hold a tablet that's up to 8.69 inches wide.

Note: When flying a Mavic, Mavic Air, or Spark, mobile devices taller than 6.8 inches or thicker than 0.34 inches (including the case) will not fit in the remote controller arms. Mobile devices up to 8 inches tall (e.g. an iPad Mini 4) can be wedged into the remote controller arms like this. If the mobile device is too thick, the inserts in the remote controller arms can be removed like this. If the mobile device is too wide, you can attach it to the remote controller with one of these mounts.

Note: Your Apple device will work better out of the box if you follow these tips.

2 The max brightness was measured by AnandTech, DisplayMate, or GSMArena.

Note: When flying a Phantom, tablets taller than 6.8 inches (including the case) will require an extender to be installed on the remote controller mount. This extender is designed well and will securely hold a tablet that's up to 8.69 inches wide.

Note: When flying a Mavic, Mavic Air, or Spark, mobile devices taller than 6.8 inches or thicker than 0.34 inches (including the case) will not fit in the remote controller arms. Mobile devices up to 8 inches tall (e.g. an iPad Mini 4) can be wedged into the remote controller arms like this. If the mobile device is too thick, the inserts in the remote controller arms can be removed like this. If the mobile device is too wide, you can attach it to the remote controller with one of these mounts.

Note: The DJI GO app currently only requires GPS on an Android device when using the Follow Me feature or to reset the home point to your current location if you've moved elsewhere after taking off.

Note: Your Android device will work better out of the box you install DJI GO like this.

Note: If you're not able to install DJI GO from the Google Play store (due to your mobile device being incompatible), you'll need to sideload the DJI GO APK.
