“Scanning QR codes on an iPhone or iPad has traditionally required you to download an often poorly-made third-party app,” Parsons writes. “But with iOS 11, there’s a QR code scanner built right into the native Camera app – so all you have to do is open the Camera app, point the iOS device at a QR code, and tap on the drop-down notification to act upon it.”
