It is possible to use the FreeStyle Libre without a reader, by using a phone app, for any phone that has NFC. Android and iOS phones both have NFC built-in, but Apple does not allow apps to use it (reserved for Apple Pay), so reading a Freestyle Libre sensor is only possible with an Android phone.

FreeStyle Libre 2 keeps the same “scanning” feature as the original FreeStyle Libre, and adds Bluetooth connectivity. This is important because it allows optional alerts for high and low blood glucose levels. The sensor is designed to be scanned with a mobile app, which is not yet available in the US.
The FreeStyle Libre 2 app‡ is free and compatible with NFC-enabled phones running iPhone 7 and higher with iOS 13.2 or higher and phones running Android OS 8 or higher.
