There are 3 generators in Core Image for 2D barcodes, but only the one for creating QR codes is documented. So I filed a bug report suggesting that the documentation was “missing”. I also sent an email to the responsible Apple evangelist.
The response I got from Apple was that if something was not documented it is to be considered private. The bug report about adding the documentation for Aztec and PDF417 was closed.
So I filed a new bug report, this time as an enhancement request, as rdar://16341653 and on OpenRadar.
It is intentionally short as to be absolutely clear what my request is:
The Aztec and PDF417 Core Image barcode generators are currently in iOS 7 as private APIs. Please make them public so that we developers can also generate these in our apps.
That’s it. Please dupe it or file your own.
PS: Today is the last day that you can preorder my book with 50% off! You also get a free license to BarCodeKit for generating 1D barcodes, a €150 value. Use promo code “bwiaunch50” when you buy the book and you get to read the chapters as I finish them.
