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

New Features

  • Changed the minimum supported Android version to 6.0 (API level 23).


  • Added support for damaged QR and Micro QR finder patterns up to two borders can be missing/damaged.


  • For ID documents issued by European Union countries data parsed from the Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) is now returned automatically when IdDocumentType.DlViz and SupportedSides.FrontAndBack are selected.

  • Improved support for parsing barcode data of mobile driver’s licenses (mDL) issued by the US state of Colorado.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed an issue that prevented certain color-inverted Aztec codes from decoding.

  • Fixed a rare crash in the Aztec code reader.

  • Fixed a failure in the MicroPDF417 error correction when missing rows at the bottom of a code.


  • Updated the camera behavior to overcome the scanning challenges found on the iPhone 13 Pro (Max) and iPhone 14 Pro (Max) when using the built-in camera for barcode scanning. Our testing showed that barcodes that are less than 2 cm or ~1 inch in size (and usually have such small features) were impacted.



Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.17.1 Bug Fixes (April 28, 2023)

  • Added SparkScanViewSettings.IgnoreDragLimits to remove limitations in the vertical movement of the scan button. This makes it possible to interact with the part of the app that might otherwise be covered by it. If the button covers the camera preview when the scanner is started, it will be moved to just under the preview.

  • Improved requirements for expiration date, issue date and document number comparison checks in AamvaVizBarcodeComparisonVerifier.

  • Fixed an issue with license error being shown when scanning driver licenses in ID Capture without barcode feature.
