You know that rare QR code you’re compelled to scan that just pops out of nowhere and now you’re stuck downloading a scanner app that you’ll only use once. Man, what a bother.

Well, Apple may be on the way to doing what some other manufacturers have been doing — integrating a code scanner into its native camera app. As noted by MacRumors, developers are already working with it on the iOS 11 preview and they’ve found that QR codes automatically get scanned and the data in it does get recognized for specific purposes like a Wi-Fi password or some contact information.

The feature is noted in the Camera section of the settings and is on by default.
