Socket Mobile, Inc., provider of mobile productivity solutions, has announced that the Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner (CHS) Series 7 and Series 8 barcode scanners are both compatible with Apple iOS 7. The products' seamless compatibility with the latest Apple devices underlies Socket Mobile's commitment to supporting the latest smartphones and tablets used by businesses for retail point of sale, field sales and service, and other mobile applications.
As a member of the Apple Developer Program, Socket Mobile obtained a beta version of iOS 7 to successfully confirm compatibility with both the CHS barcode scanners and the SocketScan 10 Software Development Kit (SDK), which enables developers to embed support for both the CHS Series 7 and Series 8 into their applications. All current models of both the Series 7 and Series 8 are Apple MFi certified to support two-way communications with Apple iOS devices.
Applications compiled with the SocketScan 10 SDK will work with iOS 7. The SDK is available to members of the Socket Mobile Developer Program. To view a select list of applications on Apple App Store that were developed with SocketScan 10 SDK, visit: http://www.socketmobile.com/appstore
