Browser Support

Ionic's earliest goal was to make it easy to develop mobile apps using web technologies like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Because of this foundation in web technologies, Ionic can run anywhere the web runs — iOS, Android, browsers, PWAs, and more.

Mobile Browsers#

In pursuit of adaptive styling, Ionic fully supports and is well tested on the mobile platforms listed below:

Ionic v65.0+ with Chromium 60+13.0+
Ionic v55.0+11.0+
Ionic v44.4+10.0+

Check the latest Android stats and the latest iOS stats for up-to-date platform information.

A Note on Android Support#

Starting with Android 5.0, the webview was moved to a separate application that can be updated independently of Android. This means that most Android 5.0+ devices are going to be running a modern version of Chromium. However, there are a still a subset of Android devices whose manufacturer has locked the webview version and does not allow the webview to update. These webviews are typically stuck at the version that was available when the device initially shipped.

As a result, Ionic Framework v6 only supports Android devices and emulators running Android 5.0+ with a webview of Chromium 60 or newer. For context, this is the version that Stencil can support with no polyfills:

Desktop Browsers#

Because Ionic is based on web technologies, it works just as well on desktop browsers as it does on mobile devices. For more information on desktop layouts, see Cross Platform.
