Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.16 Release Notes (January 23, 2023)

See also the System Requirements of the Scandit Data Capture SDK across all platforms.

New Features

  • Increased the minimum iOS version to 13.0.


  • Added support for Rectangular Micro QR Code (standardized in ISO/IEC 23941).

  • Added support for Composite Code flag parsing for GS1-128 (Code128).

  • Added misprint correction for UPCA/EAN13 barcodes for cases where wide bars were split into two thinner bars.

Performance Improvements


  • Improved decoding of QR codes with slight curvature.

  • Improved detection of full range Aztec codes with some perspective distortion.

Bug Fixes


  • Improved scanning of EAN-13 codes by reducing UPCE false positives inside EAN-13 rate to below 1%.

  • Reduced UPCE and EAN-8 false positive scans in non-barcode patterns to below 1% which nearly eliminates incidents of returning a scan when pointing camera to patterns that look like barcodes.



  • Fixed the camera preview on Aquos Sense 2 models that were previously flickering.


Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.16.1 Bug Fixes (February 6, 2023)

  • Added the Ean13UpcaClassification helper class to easily distinguish UPC-A and EAN-13 barcodes. Normally they are both returned as an Symbology.ean13Upca because UPC-A codes are a subset of EAN-13 instead of an entirely separate symbology.

Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.16.2 Bug Fixes (February 22, 2023)

  • Added a minor improvement in Rectangular Micro QR Code recognition performance.

  • Fixed a bug that caused custom views to not show up in the BarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay.
