Step 2: Now, open Control Center from there
Step 3: Finally, edit the Control Center screen and drag the Code Scanner button up with the apps that appear on your screen
Most of the iPhone users are not aware of this application because the iPhone already offers the easy Quick Response code scanning feature within the Camera app. When you scan a QR code through the camera app, the web page automatically opens through Safari. But in the case of Code Scanner, the codes appear through an in-app browser other than Safari.
After scanning a code through Code Scanner, once you close the application, the scanned code will not be available for further access unless you scan it all over again. Therefore, always remember to use the code as you need them and before discarding the application.
