There have been some exciting updates recently for SocketScan 10 SDK customers involving the new CHS 7Ci Apple certified 1D barcode scanner, Apple iOS 5.1, the new iPad, Android 4 "Ice Cream Sandwich," and more.
SPECIAL NOTES FOR ALL DEVELOPERS:
Register your SDK using the Serial Number on the CD
Don't just register your CHS barcode scanner, make sure you also register your SDK with the serial number on the CD itself! We've noticed many developers only register the CHS, but this does NOT activate the 10 hours of developer support included with the SDK! Registered SDK customers also receive notifications on free updates and fixes. Register online at: http://support.socketmobile.com.

SPECIAL NOTES FOR APPLE IOS:
Adding Support for the CHS 7Ci
If you already used SocketScan 10 SDK to develop an Apple iOS app for the CHS 7Xi or 7XiRx, update your SDK to version 10.0.8 or later to add support for the new CHS 7Ci.
- On the Socket Mobile support site, register your SDK then log in to request an SDK update to ensure you have the latest release.
- Notify Socket Mobile when your updated app is ready to resubmit for MFi approval. We will update your existing application submission to request MFi support for the CHS 7Ci.
- After 7-10 days, Socket Mobile will notify you when the application has been approved by Apple.
- Submit your application to Apple for final approval.
Compatibility Verified with Apple iOS 5.1 Devices, including the New iPad
We've tested the CHS 7Ci, 7Xi and 7XiRx in iOS mode with Apple iOS 5.1, including on the new, third-generation iPad, and everything works great. We're also in the process of getting official MFi certification from Apple for the new iPad (the barcode scanners have already been certified for the iPhone, iPod touch, and previous iPad versions).
There is a minor issue when pairing the current revision of the CHS 7Xi or 7XiRx — iOS 5.1 will report, "Connection Unsuccessful," even though the scanner is correctly connected and will work correctly with your application. Just ignore the error message and resume normal operation. We've already modified the CHS 7Ci so it won't have this issue and are updating the firmware for the 7Xi and 7XiRx.
