Does Dynamsoft Barcode Reader iOS support simulator devices?

« Back to FAQ index

Yes, Dynamsoft Barcode Reader iOS can support simulator devices, but in a very limited capacity. If you are only working with existing images in the device’s photo library, and there is no use of the camera whatsoever, then DBR iOS can work just fine on a simulator.

If you are attempting to test the SDK in an interactive video scenario, you will most likely encounter a UI unresponsiveness error that is caused by the camera open command in the code. More specifically, when the Camera Enhancer object call for the camera to open using the open method.

Please note that DCE is currently not compatible with the simulator as the required use of a camera cannot be satisfied via the simulator.

However, if you have a Mac M1 machine (or a later model) then you can test your application on the Mac M1 machine directly via Xcode. In order to do that, please select My Mac (designed for iPhone/iPad) in the dropdown menu when selecting the target device.
