Apple iOS 14 is currently only available as a developer beta, but reports are noting a brand new feature for Apple Pay. According to sources, the upcoming operating system’s Apple Pay may utilize QR codes for payment, adding a new option for users to physically purchase items.

9to5Mac came across this hidden feature in iOS 14 beta 2, and while the tool wasn’t functional as of writing, there was a readied image with simple instructions of how to use the new feature. Two options of purchasing were offered; users can just point the iPhone camera at a QR code or traditional barcode to pay for items using their credit card registered with Apple Pay, or users can hold their iPhone in front of a scanner with the QR code that’s generated by the Wallet app. Third-party apps may also be involved in some way as the feature’s code was spotted in a public system API.

This feature wasn’t announced during WWDC 2020 and since it seems to be a work in progress, sources can’t give reports on a possible release date.

In related news, take a look at a size comparison of the 5.4-inch iPhone 12.
