Socket Mobile has announced iPhone 5 support for the Socket BluetoothCordless Hand Scanner (CHS) line of portable barcode scanners.

The ScannerSettings and SocketPad utilities for the CHS have also been updated on the Apple App Store with iPhone 5 and iPad mini support.

“Roughly 75% of the developers who use our SDK are embedding support for CHS barcode scanners into their iOS applications,” said Len Ott, Chief Technical Officer of Socket Mobile.“Socket Mobile was one of the first manufacturers to offer Apple certified barcode scanners for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and we remain dedicated to supporting Apple’s latest devices.Additionally, the Socket Mobile Developer Program continues to exhibit strong growth in the Apple market, with 40 business applications posted on the Apple App Store and many proprietary applications distributed to enterprise end users.”

The CHS is available from Socket Mobile’s online store and distribution partners. Registered developers can download the SDK from the Socket Mobile Developer Portal. The ScannerSettings and SocketPad utilities are available free on the Apple App Store.
