CoScan supports these scan modes:

The application uses the latest machine learning technologies to straighten, color correct and deskew your scans. On recent iPhones image processing and text recognition are performed in near real time.

Scanning fine print and barcodes with the iPhone macro camera

As a first among PDF Scanners, CoScan supports the Macro-mode of recent flagship iPhones (13 Pro, 13 Pro Max, 14 Pro, 14 Pro Max) to scan texts in small fonts like in fine print and on business cards.

This also helps with scanning barcodes. The DataMatrix code in the screenshot has a size of less than 5x5mm². Even under very poor lighting conditions the code is detected (indicated by the green frame) and correctly identified (arrow points to macro indicator):
