MM780G Devices

Where are we?

We are now rolling out our software upgrades for MiniMed 770G customers wishing to upgrade to the MiniMed 780G, for both compatible Android and Apple devices. To check to see if your device is compatible, please check here.

What are the next steps?

Look out for an email from us letting you know when you can start the process - we will be reaching out to all of our MiniMed 770G customers in phases over the coming weeks. Remember below are some key things for you to know about how the upgrade process will work.

How will I be able to get the upgrade?

There are a number of steps to go through to get access to the software package for update:

  • You will need to take our online training modules and pass a knowledge check. This should take around 45 minutes.
  • You will need to obtain permission from your Healthcare Professional for this software upgrade.
  • You may need a consultation with your Healthcare Professional as part of the pre-upgrade training at the discretion of your Healthcare Professional.
  • You will need to have, or access to, a compatible smartphone to perform the software upgrade. You can borrow a friends or family one if you don’t have a compatible model.
  • The upgrade process will take up to 2 hours to complete, and requires internet access. Your pump will continue to work through most of this process.


We will continue to post updates on this page and via email (where you have not opted out of marketing communications), on when we are rolling it out, and exactly the next steps you need to take.


Frequently asked questions

A user can use any compatible phone – so a parent, friend or family member device if compatible. It is only required for the duration of the 2 hour upgrade process.

Yes, the user will need to have direction on the Auto-Basal target, and whether Auto-Corrections should be switched on or off. These are new clinical settings in MiniMed 780G.

These users will be moved to Phase 3 where face to face support is likely to be required.


If you have any questions, please request a call to our team.
