  1. The OS version of the device is not iOS 11 or above.
  2. QR scanning is disabled in the camera app.
  3. The QR is not detected more than once.
  4. Resolutions

    The OS version of the device is not iOS 11 or above.

    QR scanning is supported in iOS devices from iOS 11 and above. If the device's OS version is less than iOS 11 then the QR code cannot be scanned using the native app. The user can make use of third party apps to scan the QR code or update the device to the latest version.
