Full Product Description

To get started, simply connect one to four switches to Hook+, turn Switch Control on, and connect Hook+ to your iPad or iPhone. Hook+ utilizes the Apple auto switch configurator and the first time Hook+ is used with an iPad or iPhone it will automatically configure the iPad or iPhone to use single switch auto scanning or dual switch step scanning based on how many switches are connected to Hook+. Once initially configured, switches can be manually re-configured to meet the needs of the user. The Apple auto switch configurator is only available on Apple MFi approved switch interfaces.

Once Hook+ is connected and Switch Control is configured, you can do almost anything on an iPad or iPhone with a switch. Read an eBook, write an email, browse the Internet, play games, control your home, and much more!

Please note: Hook+ is not compatible with Apps that use keystrokes for switch clicks. Hook+ uses Apple’s proprietary HID Assistive Switch Control protocol for switch clicks and is compatible with Switch Control found in iOS 8 or later. To access Switch Control, go to the Settings App > General > Accessibility > Switch Control.

Hook+ now can wake your iPad or iPhone with a switch once the device has gone to sleep! You no longer need to keep your screen on and worry about using battery life when you are not using your device.

  • Utilizes Apple auto switch configurator.
  • Hook+ does not have an internal battery and can be used as long as the iPad or iPhone has a battery charge.

Hook+ Compatibility

  • Hook+ is only compatible with switch control found in the iOS or iPadOS Settings app
