Because Capacitor apps are normal native apps at the end of the day, the way they are deployed to the App Store is just like any other native app.

Please, consult the official Apple documentation on Submitting Apps to the App Store for more information.


Scanbot Barcode Scanner SDK uses native libraries under the hood and supports the following ABIs: armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a, x86 and x86_64.

To exclude certain ABIs, use the abiFilters property in the Android Gradle settings of your project.

Please check and adjust the abiFilters configuration in your build.gradle file accordingly:

android {
defaultConfig {
ndk {
// a typical production configuration:
abiFilters "armeabi-v7a", "arm64-v8a"

💡 However, if you need to support all architectures and to optimize the APK size, we highly recommend checking out the Android App Bundle approach. It allows you to create and distribute dedicated and smaller APKs via the PlayStore.
