New Pop-Up iOS Keyboard using Socket Mobile Bluetooth Barcode Scanners

Posted July 1, 2014

Many Bluetooth barcode scanners have a serious drawback when used with an iOS device due to the fact that Apple products recognize the scanner as a wireless keyboard and disable the  the built-in virtual keyboard. This essentially means that anytime you want to manually type any information you have to uncouple the Bluetooth scanner to gain access to the on-screen keyboard again.

Obviously, this is a major problem for most users and counter acts any benefits gained with the scanner.

Luckily there are some manufacturers, like Socket, that have scanners capable of acting as a HID Bluetooth device which retains the virtual keyboard functionality by double tapping the power button to allow simultaneous scanning and keystrokes.

Check out this short video for a simple demonstration of this unique feature with Socket’s Apple certified CHS Series scanners
