Both iPhones and iPads have a QR scanner built into the camera.
1. With a QR code nearby, open the camera on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Position the camera so the QR code is in frame. Your iPhone or iPad should scan it automatically, without any input needed from you.
Once it scans the code, a notification will appear at the top of your screen with the link to the QR code’s content. Tap this and you’ll be brought to it.
Similarly to Apple users, Android devices have the QR code scanner built into the camera. However, you might need to open a special app to use it.
1. With a QR code nearby, open the camera on your Android device.
2. Position the camera so the QR code is in frame. Your Android should scan it automatically, but if it doesn’t, press and hold your finger on it.
You’ll be given the link that the QR code leads to, and a choice to open it, copy the URL, or share it.
