Where Can I Download the DJI Fly App
Before taking off on your first flight with your Mavic Mini you must download the DJI Fly app.
You can download the DJI Fly app for both android and iOS devices directly from the DJI website. Download Link Here
Note: You cannot download the DJI Fly app through the Google PlayStore. The only way to download the DJI Fly app is through the official DJI website.
What is The DJI Fly App
The DJI Fly App is an incredible tool that allows you to capture amazing photos and videos that you can download from your SD card and edit on your phone.
The DJI Fly app is used for the Mavic Mini, Mavic Mini 2, Mavic Mini SE, Mavic Air 2, DJI Air 2s, DJI FPV, and the DJI Mavic 3 drones.
The app has so many functions. Some of those include photo and video editing, navigating so you can see where you are flying, a live location time map of where you are flying, auto and manual exposures for taking photos, no-fly zones, and several flight modes that you can choose from (Sports mode, Cinematic mode, and Position mode), set your return to home parameters, altitude settings, live battery level for your drone, several quick shot modes for insane recordings (rocket, dronie, circle and helix modes), find my drone, calibrating settings, and a lot more!!
The DJI app is one of the most useful drone apps that I have come across and totally love using it!!
Does The DJI Fly App Work With Android Phones
Yes, but the DJI Fly App requires your phone to be Android 6.0 or above and runs a 64-bit Android operating system. Those that run on a 32-bit Android operating system run into compatibility issues.
How to Check if Your Phone or Tablet is running 32-bit or 64-bit
If you are not sure if your android phone is running 64-bit or 32-bit, you can download an app on your phone to check which bit your phone is running.
One of the most popular apps to check if your phone is running 32-bit or 64-bit is CPU-Z. CPU-Z is easy to install and very easy to use to determine exactly which bit you are running. (Click here to download CPU-Z directly from Google Playstore).
Below is a quick video to show you how to use CPU-Z.
Does The DJI Fly App Work With Apple iOS Devices
If you are using an iOS device, it must be running iOS 11.0 or above.
How to Check What Version of iOS Your Apple Device is Running
Simply go to Settings > General > About. Once you are on the ‘About’ page, look down at the ‘Version’ section. This will tell you what version of iOS your device is running on.
If you are running an earlier version than 11.0, you can easily update the version depending on how old your Apple device is.
How Can I Upgrade my Apple Devices iOS Version?
Simply go to Settings > General > Software Update. Your Apple device will automatically check if there is an updated iOS version for your device.
If there is an update available for your device, simply just click on ‘Download and Install’, and that’s it, you will have the latest version.
