The basic scanner for an iPhone would be wifi, bluetooth doesn't work. It's $27, consider the extra $4 over the $23 bluetooth one an iPhone tax. Otherwise if you want a scanner that does all the subsystems of the car, get the Autel I mentioned earlier, cheaper than the blue driver mentioned earlier.

Then why are these bluetooth 4.0 ones are out there made for the iPhones.


The BAFX bluetooth one doesn't work with an iPhone. They're just popular because they have over 14000+ reviews and it works. Some cheaper models might be hit or miss.

The Autel AP200 is Bluetooth and works great on my iPhone 11. Was $50 at Walmart and includes 1 free vehicle’s full functions but also functions as a generic OBD II reader.

For iOS you need Bluetooth LE which was available starting in 4.0. You can make a Bluetooth 4.0 or later device and not include LE since it’s optional. So you have to check the specs.
