NIX Solutions Updates: iOS 14 Will Get a Feature Similar to Android Slices

Judging by numerous leaks, iOS 14 will bring many new features. Today, told the 9to5mac resource told about one of them. The source says that in the new version of the operating system, an as yet unnamed feature will appear that allows to run applications without installing them on your smartphone first.

It will work based on the API Clips. But this will not be done as one might think. The source says the software that is not installed on your smartphone will be launched after you scan the corresponding QR code.

For example, someone wants to share a YouTube video with you and generates a QR code for this and sends it to you. It will be enough for you to scan this code, and the smartphone will launch the video from YouTube in a separate window, even if you do not have this application installed.

Developers themselves will be able to determine which part of the program should be activated as part of this function, as all the software features are not required in this mode.

In Android, a similar function is called Slices, notes NIX Solutions.  It is implemented in a slightly different format – in the search results of Google and the Assistant.
