You might just wait it out for the next version. But, I don’t think its a bad idea to buy a separate cell phone for this project only. I think its good to have one cell phone for just medical purposes, not with a bunch of apps installed on it, not one that you use to browse the internet. OpenAPS, OpenOmni, Loop are all joined into one project, I believe.
You can get loop for your Medtronic pump. That has been available for a long time. However, I, personally, would not change pump hardware to accommodate the software. Changing cell phone is no big of a deal. Changing to this new system will be a big deal and I dont think you want to make too many changes at once. It will come to you. Give it a little time. Its here. Start reading documentation in preparation for an upcoming change.
Also, I’m curious. Have you discussed this with your doctor? What did they say? I dont know if this has to be a secret change or not. I dont understand what I say to my Doc, but I’m nervous about it. I have an appointment coming in June. I will discuss it then and let you know how it goes.
I sent him preliminary research some months ago to prepare him for whats coming. If you need it, I will upload it here…There’s some long winded stuff because I wrote it for school. Its very long, but it contains all necessary research in the references at the back. Hope this helps! Not sure what else to do to prepare the Docs. (There are two parts - its a very large word file)

@Terry4, I saw u starting to write something…How did you talk to your Doc about this? What did they say? Did it make them nervous?
