Brett’s iTip: I’m at a conference where there are lots of QR codes that people want me to scan. In recent versions of iOS you can simply open the Camera app, make sure you’re in “Photo” mode and point it at the QR code. You should see a yellow link button appear that you can tap to visit the link. You can also tap the little “code scanner button” in the bottom right corner. There’s also a dedicated “Code Scanner” that you can add to your Control Center. Go to Settings - Control Center - and add “Code Scanner.” Now you can launch that from Control Center and it will give you 4 corners in which to place the QR code (along with a flashlight if you need it). Be warned that when you hover over the QR code it will immediately open the link in Safari or your your email app.
