Which iPads can I use with the original Structure Sensor (ST01)?

Are you unsure which iPad models are compatible with the Structure Sensor line? Please check out this guide to check if your iPad is supported. For instructions on determining your iPad's model number, please refer to the bottom of this article.

Note on new iPad models

Newer iPad models may work with the original Structure Sensor, but they are no longer actively tested, and issues discovered with these iPads will not be addressed.

To identify what iPad you have, take a look at the model number on the back cover:

Alternatively, you can go to "Settings -> General -> About -> Model".  Tap "Model" once to reveal.
