Apple iOS14 could let users try apps without downloading them completely

The number of leaks surrounding iOS 14 is just starting to get a little ridiculous. Code analysed by 9to5Mac reveals another new feature that may be a part of Apple’s next iteration of its mobile operating system. The feature in question is termed Clips and it will let users experience an app without having to fully download it.

The feature was discovered by examining the Clips API, which reveals that users will be able to experience a part of the app through interactive cards. The feature is similar to Slices in Android, which shows interactive parts of an app in Google search results. Apple’s Clips will leverage the QR code reader to scan a code linked to the app of their choice and then receive the interactive portions of the app.

This is going to be beneficial for users who’ve felt curious about an app, downloaded it, only to realize it wasn’t what they were looking for. This feature would help prevent such situations where you’ve spent bandwidth downloading an app, only to delete it right after. What would be interesting to see is if paid apps would offer a similar experience. Currently, if you pay for an app and aren’t happy with it, there’s no easy way to get a refund. Apple doesn’t officially support refunds for purchased apps but will issue you one if you purchased the app by mistake. If Apple does end up implementing this feature, it could also help prevent people from spending on apps, only to find out later that it isn’t what they wanted. It would appear that iOS14 is going to bring a lot of amazing features and functionality to iPhone users. This includes new wallpaper settings, and even the ability to choose non-Apple apps as default apps.
