Smart Card Utility for iPhone and iPad Update 3.6

You are here:

Smart Card Utility enables smart card authentication to supported websites via Safari. No changes in the backend, websites, or cards: just plug in your existing PIV-enabled smart card and log in!

Note: this update includes features planned for version 3.5 but due to a regression, 3.5 was never released.

The update to 3.6 brings the following new changes for version 3.6 (5334):

Restore Purchases in Settings

  • The “restore purchases” button and the “activate reader” button has been moved to settings. They had been in the trial sheet which was removed.

More card information

  • Battery level for Bluetooth reader now shows in push
  • Number of PIN attempts remaining now shows in push when wrong PIN entered
  • Added progress indicator when reading certificates. Fancy.


  • Better connecting and reconnecting when multiple readers nearby
  • Changed text to recommend only inserting slot 9A: PIV Authentication
  • Removed Remove all Certs button
  • changed “identities” to “certificates”
