Nebo-compatible iOS devices

Nebo is an application powered by Interactive Ink, MyScript’s handwriting recognition technology.

Interactive ink lets you handwrite and edit text, diagrams and equations on a touchscreen, and converts them into digital content.

Nebo is only compatible with operating systems (OS) and devices that can handle our technology, and active pens are mandatory to write in Nebo.

You will find below a list of compatible devices on iOS devices.

Note that all compatible devices have an active digitizer touchscreen and an associated active pen. 

Capacitive pens are NOT compatible with Nebo. Make sure your pen is not a capacitive one.

  • macOS: not supported
  • iOS: iOS 11.0 or superior (non beta versions)
