An immersed umbilic-free hypersurface in the unit sphere is equipped with three Möbius invariants, namely, the Möbius metric, the Möbius second fundamental form and the Möbius form. The fundamental theorem of Möbius submanifolds geometry states that a hypersurface of dimension not less than three is uniquely determined by the Möbius metric and the Möbius second fundamental form. A Möbius isoparametric hypersurface is defined by two conditions that it has vanishing Möbius form and has constant Möbius principal curvatures. It is well-known that all Euclidean isoparametric hypersurfaces are Möbius isoparametrics, whereas the latter are Dupin hypersurfaces. In this paper, combining with previous results, a complete classification for all Möbius isoparametric hypersurfaces in the unit six-sphere is established.
