Turn the scanner on
Press and hold the small button until the scanner beeps twice.
Set the scanner to iOS mode
iOS mode is required for the scanner to work properly with the Register app.
From a distance of 1 to 2 feet, aim the scanner at the barcode below and press and hold the large button until the scanner beeps three times.
Connect the scanner in your iPad's Bluetooth settings
On your iPad, tap Settings, then Bluetooth.
Look for Socket D750 or Socket D760 and tap it to connect.
If you don't see a Socket device listed here, tap the Bluetooth toggle on the iPad screen to turn it off. Wait 10 seconds, then tap the toggle again to turn it on.
If the scanner appears as a "Keyboard", scan the barcode above until you hear three beeps.
Connect the scanner in the Register app settings
Open the Register app, tap the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left, then Settings > Barcode Scanner. You should see a check mark next to Barcode scanner detected.
Scan the sample barcode on the screen to test and confirm the connection. A check mark appears next to Barcode scanned after a successful test scan.
