Scan with camera
The camera is ideal to scan QR codes.
You can also scan 1D barcodes but that can be slow. A Bluetooth scanner is much quicker.
|Barcode types supported by camera:||Supported by|
|QR codes||iOS7 and later|
|Code 39/93/128, UPC-A/E, EAN-8/13, PDF 417||iOS7 and later|
|Code 2 of 5 interleaved, Data Matrix, Aztec||iOS8 and later|
