2 Open the QR Scanner from Control Center
You might not know it, but you can use the Camera app to automatically scan QR codes. You can quickly access this feature with 3D Touch, but in iOS 12 you can also add a QR scanner control to Control Center. So if you scan a lot of QR codes this feature is for you.
- Control Center
- Customize Controls you can add the Scan QR Code control to your Control Center.
Swipe down on the top-left corner of the display to access Control Center and tap the QR Code icon to get scanning. Just keep in mind, the QR scanner is really just the Camera app… so it’s really not any different than opening Camera. Like faces and other elements, QR codes are automatically detected.
