Dario blood glucose meters are very popular among Apple users as they can be used in conjunction with an iPhone app. This provides you with the ability to effortlessly track and monitor blood glucose testing results over time and for some, it has been incredibly valuable in helping them manage their diabetes.
Up until recently, the Dario meter utilized the audio jack in the iPhone. As of iPhone 7, the device no longer has an audio jack, so this became a problem for users. Once they upgraded their phone, their Dario meter would not work!
Since then, Dario has redesigned their smart meter to comply with the newer iPhone 7 and higher models. This new meter, called Dario LC, now connects to your iPhone using the lightning jack – that’s the outlet you use to plug in your phone charger. It is specially designed for iPhone 7 and 7+, iPhone 8 and 8+, and the newest iPhone X.
Dario LC now available at Diabetic Outlet
As Dario meters are one of our most popular blood glucose testing meters, we wanted to make sure you have access to the latest versions as soon as they became available.
Of course, your older Dario smart meter will continue to work with your iPhone if it is a model 6, 6+, or earlier. Once you upgrade to a newer phone, you will need to upgrade to Dario LC with lightning connector. Android users can also continue to use the older Dario meters until their design no longer includes an audio jack.
Dario glucose meters: simply smarter
The Dario blood glucose monitoring system is for use in conjunction with the Dario app. The app is available—and is free for the iOS platform—through Apple’s App Store.
