If you want Scan a QR code or document is now within reach of a simple screen tap with a little more pressure than usual thanks to these new shortcuts that are introduced in this new version of iOS. Even in the control center we can make use of them. We tell you how they work.

The QR scanner was slow to be introduced in iOS natively, but it seems that Apple has realized that users use it a lot since it has decided to include it in the functions that appear when pressing on the icon of the Camera app on our springboard . Take a selfie, record a video, take a picture in Portrait Mode and now stairs a QR code These are the options that appear and that will directly open the camera in that option.

It is an option that I use a lot and that Apple introduced in its application Notes last year on iOS 11, as one of the novelties of the system. This is one of the most accurate scanners I've tried on iOS since It allows you to scan documents without worrying too much if they are perfectly square on the screen, and it's really fast. Now you will also have it within a single click on the Notes icon.

These 3D Touch options exist even within the Control Center if we add the Camera and Notes applications to it. We can also add the QR scanner function to the Control Center. Two small novelties that nevertheless improve daily use for those who use them frequently.
