OwlOCR (v2+): I don't see my iOS device as a camera option

The Continuity Camera is a magical framework provided mainly by Apple engineers that OwlOCR uses. Be sure to check the requirements on Apple's website.The main requirements are that devices (Mac, iOS device) are near each other and have both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on, are signed in to iCloud with the same Apple ID that is using two-factor authentication and your iOS device is using iOS 12 or newer.

If you feel that the requirements should be covered and are still experiencing disconnects or cannot see your device in the menu, you can try solutions that have worked for similar issues in other applications using Continuity Camera or reach out to us with an email.
