Best Bluetooth Barcode Scanners for iOS
Three of the best Bluetooth scanners for iOS are the Unitech MS912, the Zebra CS3070 and the Honeywell Voyager 1602g. All three of these scanners are easy to pair with iOS, and interface well with iPhones and iPads.
Best Affordable Bluetooth Scanner
Unitech MS912 - $129

Best Features: 5 foot drop spec, 1 year warranty
Cons: Only has one button used for both scanning and bringing up the keyboard, which can make rapid scanning difficult. The MS912 is a 1D scanner, so it can't scan QR codes or shipping codes.
