Is there a way to add the serial number to iPad wallpaper as a barcode instead of a QR code?

New Contributor

I'd like to be able to add the iPads serial number or asset tag to the wallpaper as a standard barcode, instead of a QR code, so it can be easily scanned during a stocktake.

Is this possible, or would we need to get QR capable scanners instead?

As far as I know, there isn't a really practical method. The QR support was baked in by Jamf, which is likely leveraging an open source library or possibly Google. They didn't provision any other symbologies (barcode languages) for lack of popularity. To use another you'd have to generate them, build wallpapers with the barcode for each device, and then assign them all.
