Alternatives to Bluetooth Scanners
While ‘point and shoot’ is a nice option, the trade-off with using bluetooth barcode scanning accessories is the need for two devices. Therefore, you could consider using a barcode scanning sled like the Honeywell Captuvo. Importantly, it has the same point and shoot capability but the iOS device is integrated with a rugged case and battery pack. Also, you should evaluate our SD PRO scan engine, which rivals the scanning speed and accuracy of purpose built scanners using just the device’s built-in camera. Essentially, there are many other alternatives to bluetooth barcode scanners to fit your use case.
SPP Mode vs. HID Mode
Primarily, bluetooth scanners can connect to a device in two ways: SPP Mode and HID Mode. First, SPP Mode (Serial Port) is faster as it captures the entire barcode value at once. Secondly, HID Mode uses keyboard emulation to enter one character of the barcode value at a time.

|iOS||HID Mode only|
