Problem: many iPhone users still do not know how to scan QR codes on iPhone.
How to scan QR codes with iPhone?
QR codes can be used for a lot of things — website links, coupons, tickets, and contact information, just to name a few. However using them with an iPhone or iPad isn’t in detail insightful. Though iOS devices are ideally capable of reading and acting upon QR codes, that functionality is fairly restricted by default.
The only built-in iOS QR reader functionality is carried within the Wallet app on iPhone and iPod. To access the scanner, open the app, click on the plus button at the top of the “Passes” section, then tap on Scan Code to Add a Pass. From here, you are able to scan QR codes for tickets, coupons, boarding passes, and the like — but only for the specific things that Wallet considers “passes.” If you attempt to scan any other QR code, you’ll get an error message.
Luckily, there are abundance of app developers out there who are happy to add more fully featured QR code-reading capabilities to your iOS device. One of the best is Quick Scan – QR Code Reader, which comes to pass to be free in the App Store. (You can also upgrade to the Pro version of the app for a small sum so you can scan bar codes and access other features.) Completely fire up the app and you’ll be able to scan QR codes that redirect you to websites or allow you to access other kinds of data in no time flat. It may not be a built-in app, but it’s about as simple a way to scan QR codes as you can get.
Here is the step by step guiding on how to scan QR codes on iPhone:
#1. First open the App Store
Alternatively, you can get QR reading from a multi-purpose camera app. We like using ProCamera 8, Swipe to the QR reader mode and point your camera to that code!
