Safari on the latest versions of macOS and iOS supports WebRTC. Find more information, see the Developer documentation for Safari Browser Support. iOS devices can also use our native iOS SDK.

Users should upgrade to the latest browser version to ensure compatibility support with their browser. For older browser versions, a dismissable warning banner displays that requests users to update.

On any JS SDK version, the UI can be prevented from displaying with a call to OT.checkRequirements. This is an important pre-call step that you should take, especially if you want to prevent the incompatibility warning from displaying in your application.

Be cautious when using this functionality and be aware that incompatibilities with old browser versions can cause unpredictable behavior.
