    Because the stock camera can only handle QR codes but not barcodes.

    Why not make it scan both? Any ideas?

    I don’t see a use case where barcodes are useful, other than for being a few random numbers.

    I don't think so, that's your thought. Android can do it, why Apple can't do it?

    I don’t know.
    You can always submit feedback to Apple

    When I use to have an Android device, using the camera to scan barcodes gave me a price of that item while I was out shopping. So I could check other stores for a cheaper option, or take advantage of a store policy that offers to beat or match any price. Being a frugal shopper I really do miss that feature being built in.

    There still are apps for that purpose in the AppStore.
    The stock camera app can’t do it.

    And yet there are apps for QR Codes too, but Apple added it to the camera so we don't have to install a 3rd party app.

    It could do it.. if Apple added the feature. Time for me to hit that Feedback button and make a request.
