Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.19 Release Notes (September 19, 2023)

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

New Features

  • Added a privacy manifest with required reasons APIs to all frameworks.


  • If you are not familiar with the symbologies that are relevant for your use case, you can now use our capture presets, pre-defined groups of symbologies that are tailored for different verticals (e.g. retail, logistics, etc.). You can use them through the new constructors for SDCSparkScanSettings and SDCBarcodeCaptureSettings.

  • Added support for the SDCSymbologyArUco symbology.

  • Added a new “accuracy” workflow in SparkScan. This workflow is particularly useful when the use-cases implies lots of barcodes close together or in crowded scenarios, and requires the end-user the possibility to look through the preview at all times to better control the scan and aim precisely. See SDCSparkScanScanningPrecision.

  • Added SDCBarcodeSpatialGrid.JSONString that returns the JSON representation of the spatial grid.


  • Renamed AamvaCloudVerifier to SDCAAMVABarcodeVerifier, which allows the verification of SDCCapturedId.

  • Added SDCIdCaptureFeedback. ID Capture allows to configure sound & vibration feedback to emit when a document is captured, rejected or the timeout occurs. By default the feedback is emitted when a document is captured.

  • Added support for extracting information in Arabic script for several documents.


Behavioral Changes


Performance Improvements


  • Improved performance when a lot of symbologies are enabled when using SDCBarcodeCapture or SDCSparkScan.

  • Added support for Code128 with damaged end patterns (missing, fused or covered bars). This support is automatically disabled if “strict mode” is selected.

  • Improved QR code reader robustness for medium to large codes with small local deformations (e.g. crumpling, bending) or damage.

  • Improved responsiveness of AR overlays in MatrixScan and Barcode Selection.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed the issue where the overlay for SparkScan stayed visible when it shouldn’t have.


  • Fixed multiple issues where it was sometimes not possible to scan barcodes from AAMVA driver’s licenses.

  • Fixed an issue where it was not possible to scan certain Vietnamese passports.

  • Fixed an issue where it was sometimes not possible to scan a barcode from a Pennsylvania driver’s license.

  • Fixed an issue where it was not possible to scan certain passports when the id.IdDocumentType.PassportViz option was selected.

  • Fixed an issue that caused a failure of the SDCAAMVAVizBarcodeComparisonVerifier for valid IDs.

  • Fixed an issue where scanning MRZ documents in ID Capture incorrectly displayed dates for year 2000.


  • Fixed an issue that caused the App Store asset validation to fail when including the SDK via Swift Package Manager.

API Changes


  • The ScanditOCR framework has been removed. Use ScanditIDC if you need to capture the human readable part of ID documents, ScanditTXT if you use TextCapture, or both, if you need both capabilities.

  • Added SDCDateResult.localDate and SDCDateResult.utcDate which convert the date result to NSDate using device’s local time zone or the UTC time zone respectively. They replace, which is now deprecated.

  • Removed id.IdDocumentType.UsVisaViz, id.IdDocumentType.VisaMrz should be used instead.

  • Added id.CapturedId.DocumentAdditionalNumber which represents the additional number of the document.



  • SDCSparkScanSettings.locationSelection is deprecated and its functionality was removed. With the introduction of smart configurations based on the scanning mode enabled by the users, the locationSelection property is not needed anymore and has been deprecated.
