Just got an iPhone 12 and I'm checking to see if the DJI GO 4 App is working fine with my Mavic Air  and as I launched the app  I got a "Permission Request" screen that wants me to Allow Photos & Location info. When I touch the "Allow All" on the phone nothing happens. It seem the screen is frozen. I can exit the app but seems that by not being able to Allow this Permission I'm dead in the water. I think I'm on the newest version but hard to tell since I can't go forward into the app. Any help appreciated.

Hello there smallWstudio4. I am sorry for the trouble this has caused and thank you for reaching out. Upon checking the mobile device ( iPhone 12 ) on the recommended mobile device list for the DJI Go 4 application and on the recommended mobile device list for the DJI Mavic Air. I am sorry to say that the said mobile device is not yet recommended for the said DJI application and for the said DJI drone. There is a possibility that the iPhone 12 will be able to work on the DJI Go 4 application. But however, since it's not yet optimized with the said application and for the DJI Mavic Air we cannot guaranteed if it will work all the time and if it will be able to run all the functions of the DJI Go 4 application while in use For reference, I will be posting the list of the recommended mobile device for the DJI Go 4 application. Thank you.

These admins are 90% computer generated, you can tell by their super consistent style.

Too bad they don't at least have a trainee that responds to this stuff for 10 hrs a week ...

On topic: I'm on android - no issues there with the app; too bad it doesn't work on apple - but there are other apps the fly the mavic. I read positive stories about lichi. It cost 20 bucks or so, might be worth a try

Thanks so much for your reply. That might be worth a try before upgrading to a new drone!!!

I have no skin in this game, android ecosystem - but don't want to go that route. I just thought it was weird that they (dji) initially sold it through apple store and what not, and now it doesn't even work on ios anymore; bypass the app, or buy android ;)

or maybe, this conversation triggers/annoys them so much they fix it ...

its time to fly

So is this for real - the Go app does not work with the iPhone 12??? That's just crazy. That's my new phone, but now I can no longer use my Mavic Air?!

Does DJI have any indication of when this will be rectified?

You could be right, I was looking at the other end of the line with orange green and blue, assumed the numbers were people who found it worked for them, it's all a bit of a mine field trying to find what will and won't work.

I just had my I7 replaced and transferred apps, I got to my job and the window " permission Request " pops up asking to access my photos and location but the window is froze. I close app  re open, shut phone down re start no luck. I delete app and reload the window pops up again as part of the new reload but i am able to input now the app is working and i can fly again. I think the new OPS had something to do with it

I just bought an iPhone 12 also.  I’m disappointed to hear it won’t let me fly on my new phone.  Since I can’t use DJI GO 4 to fly my MAVIC AIR with DJI Go 4 app, will I be able to fly it with DJI FLY app?

Hi Mary, I'm one of those Android users myself, but Ray (right above) seems to have gotten it to work by installing the app twice. I really hope that would fix it. The fly app is for the mini, as far as I know.

Hope you're up in the air again soon

Hello team; I'm an owner of the Mavic Air (original version) and I use an iPhone 12 pro with current iOS. The permission request is from the Apple IOS system and it asks each new app for permission to access the photos/videos location on your phone. this is normal. If the app seems frozen, simply close out and restart the app till the screen making the request goes away. This sometimes can take 1 or 2 tries...

Permission Request just started blocking my access to the DJI Go 4 app. I have an iPhone 10 and a Mavic Pro.

Deactivate all notifications for the app in your iPhone 12 menu so the window won’t pop up

All is well on the iPhone 12 and the DJI GO 4 app. The tips were good but I think it was my fault in not allowing Location and Photos permission. Allowed that and all is well and now I can even not allow and the app loads fine. I did have to go into "Settings" to do the permissions as well not at the app.

Of course I guess this is still not a recommended device for the app sorry to say.
