Step 1: Open Settings
First, go to your iPhone’s “Settings” app. This can be found on your home screen or in your app library.
Step 2: Go to Camera Settings
Once you’re in the “Settings” app, scroll down and tap on “Camera.”
Step 3: Disable QR Code Scanner
In the “Camera” settings, you will find an option called “Scan QR Codes.” Simply toggle the switch next to it to the off position.
Step 4: Close Settings
After you’ve turned off the QR code scanner, simply exit the “Settings” app by pressing the home button or swiping up from the bottom of the screen.
Step 5: Test the Camera
Once you’ve disabled the QR code scanner, test your iPhone camera to make sure the change has taken effect. Open the camera app and try scanning a QR code. If the scanner is disabled, nothing should happen when you point your camera at the code.
Step 6: Re-enable QR Code Scanner (Optional)
If you change your mind and decide you want to use the QR code scanner again, simply follow the same steps and toggle the “Scan QR Codes” switch back on.
