Scan QR Codes With Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

If you are using an iPhone, you are in luck as you do not need to install a third-party App to Scan QR Codes. The camera of your iPhone has QR Code Scanning capabilities. Every Apple device running iOS 11 or higher comes with this built-in QR Code Scanning capability.

Step 01: Unlock your iPhone and launch the Camera App from your device’s Home screen, Control Center, or Lock screen

Step 02: Place the QR Code inside the Camera Frame. There is no need to get a perfect positioning just make sure you get all the four corners of the QR Code with your camera. However, if you point your Camera onto the QR Code from a tilted angle, your iPhone might fail to recognize the Code. Once you have positioned your iPhone onto the QR Code wait a few seconds until the scan completes. Remember, you don’t need to hit the Capture button to initiate the QR Scan.
