My Minnesota WIC App
The My Minnesota WIC App can be used to easily and instantly check if a food item is WIC-allowed and find WIC-allowed stores nearby. It can also be used by registered WIC households to check benefit balances and receive reminder messages for scheduled and missed appointments. It is currently available for iPhone iOS 16.0 and higher, and Android version 6.0 and up, and can be downloaded from the App Store and Google play.
App Update and Older Phones
iPhones older than 7 (released in 2016) cannot download the My MN WIC App because those phone models cannot update to iOS version 16.0. Apple no longer supports older iOS versions and requires that all app updates are only available for iOS version 16.0 or higher.
- Current WIC App users with an iPhone 7 or earlier, who downloaded the app before its June 2023 update, can continue using the app but will not be able to see or use WIC Mobile App enhancements or upgrades. This includes app notifications. Users will still receive messages and can view those in the messages section of the app.
- New WIC participants with an iPhone 7 or earlier may not be able to download the My MN WIC App. Local agencies are aware of app notifications and can share that important information with participants.
MN WIC surveyed all WIC participants prior to the June 2023 update to determine the types of phones and models participants use. We received 7,424 responses and only 1.5% of the participants surveyed indicated their iPhones were older than 7.
