Code found in iOS 14 beta 2 points to Apple working on bringing QR code support for payments using Apple Pay. This will allow Apple Pay users to simply scan a QR code to trigger a transaction.
References to the feature were found in the Wallet app by 9to5Mac after updating to the second iOS 14 beta that was released today.
Apple Pay QR Code Payment iOS 14
The feature for scanning a QR code does not work at this time, but it appears users will scan a QR code with the iPhone’s camera to pay bills using an Apple Pay-compatible card stored in the Wallet app.
Apple released the second beta of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 to developers earlier today. Apart from references to the QR Code Payment feature, it also comes with plenty of other changes and improvements.
