Features of the new Square Reader include:

– A custom magnetic readhead and spring. Thinner and more accurate than the alternatives, the readhead parses redundant data from credit cards to ensure successful swipes.

– Custom electronics in a single chip. The reader is powered by the phone into which it is plugged, eliminating the need for a bulky battery and increasing life and reliability.

– Improved communications protocols and a custom audio plug. The Square Reader is compatible with more devices than ever before.

– The thinnest mobile card reader on the market.

The new Square Reader is available today and is free to anyone that signs up for a Square account.
