iOS: How To Scan QR Codes
The built-in camera app on iPhones running iOS 11 and later can scan QR codes. Here's how to scan a QR code with an iPhone:
- Open the Camera app: This can usually be found on the home screen or in the app drawer.
- Point the camera at the QR code: Make sure the QR code is within the frame of the camera.
- Focus the camera: Hold the camera steady and allow it to focus on the QR code. This may take a few seconds.
- Scan the QR code: Once the QR code is in focus, your iPhone should automatically recognize it and display a notification with the information contained in the QR code. You can then tap the notification to take the appropriate action, such as opening a website or downloading a mobile app.
If you have an older iPhone that doesn't support QR code scanning through the camera app, you can download a QR code reader app from the App Store. Simply search for "QR code reader" in the App Store and select an app that meets your needs.
