Jacquard iOS SDK

Jacquard™ by Google weaves new digital experiences into the things you love, wear, and use every day to give you the power to do more and be more. Jacquard SDK is a way to connect Jacquard interactions within your apps. Create an app and bring it to life with swipes and taps through the Jacquard SDK.

What do I need to get started?

The iOS Jacquard SDK supports iOS versions 13 and greater.

You will need the Jacquard Tag with a supported Jacquard product (all come with one tag). Currently supported products are:

  • Levi’s Trucker Jacket
  • Samsonite Konnect-i backpack
  • Saint Laurent Cit-e Backpack

You can find links to purchase these products on the Google Jacquard website.

If you have just opened a new retail Jacquard product, your tag probably needs a firmware update (and perhaps charging). Review the steps in the Updating Firmware page.
