  • No. This is simply a Smart Card Reader - Hardware - which means that you also need to have the necessary software components and integration to be able to use it with an iOS device. As of iOS 7, Apple does not provide any Smart Card / Reader integration into the platform. There are third-party readers that have already been integrated into various Enterprise Applications, but they had to integrate the Smart Card Reader vendor's SDK as well as provide their own support for the particular Smart Cards in use. Also, bear in mind that this reader leverages USB and there is no USB port on an iOS device - and rightly so.
