The company upgraded to Capture SDK about 18 months ago, to maintain a track record of 100% compatibility on all iOS versions. The Socket Mobile Capture SDK also provides support for Socket Mobile’s range of NFC products, which Apple expanded beyond Apple Pay with the release of iOS 13. 

In conjunction with its application partners, Socket Mobile has deployed several hundred thousand devices, which are actively working in businesses across the world. Socket Mobile’s Capture SDK enables Apple, Android and Windows application developers to easily incorporate mobile data collection solutions into their app. The combined solution makes data entry more reliable, accurate and controlled, eliminating user errors and enabling a high level of overall system efficiency.

Long Pan, senior software product manager, Socket Mobile, said: “We are dedicated to ensuring all our devices –both legacy and current– which are supported by our Capture SDK work seamlessly with latest platform upgrades. With many new features and performance improvements in iOS 13, now is the right time for our developer partners to upgrade their apps and migrate to Capture SDK. This will ensure all Socket Mobile Bluetooth scanners, regardless of age, will continue to work with users’ applications. The Capture SDK also provides NFC support, which Apple has enabled for developers in iOS 13. Capture SDK’s support for our D600 RFID reader/writer and upcoming S550 Token Exchange provides a unique solution the market has been waiting for.”
