Apple could introduce QR Code payment functionality


This Tuesday, July 7, Apple released the second beta of iOS 14 for developers. Quickly, the Sherlock Holmes of the web searched the code to discover the slightest novelty. And to this little game, the 9to5Mac site wins the game, with the discovery of a new option for Apple Pay.

Apple’s contactless payment system, available from us at the banks of the BNP Paribas Fortis group and from a handful of neo-banks, could soon welcome a new feature.

Indeed, to believe a presentation screen hidden within iOS 14 Beta 2, users will soon be able to pay by scanning a QR Code. An option already offered by several Belgian banks.

Currently, the option is not yet active (it is after all a beta), but the image accompanying the presentation screen is rather clear. According to 9to5Mac, conventional barcodes would also be supported, as well as the possibility of generating a QR Code yourself in the Wallet application, and having it scanned by a seller.

Finally, the site tells us that the option could be used by third-party applications, this being placed in a development kit accessible to all creators of applications.

The option was not presented at the WWDC conference, including Apple may not be quite ready yet. But the apple brand still has time. The public version of iOS 14 and the other OS presented last June (iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, macOS Big Sur) are expected for September.
