- iOS 15 will allow developers to display a full-screen App Clip interface for the first time.
- App Clips have been around since iOS 14 but they were limited to smaller cards at the bottom of the screen.
Apple's iOS 15 release, due to arrive this fall, will bring with it the ability for developers to offer full-screen App Clips via Safari for the first time.
First announced as part of the iOS 14 update last year, App Clips allow developers to pop up mini versions of their apps when someone visits a website or scans a code. But the previous implementation meant for a small interface that required multiple taps. That'll all change with iOS 15 as spotted by 9to5Mac.
Developers can learn more about what's new with App Clips on the Apple Developer website along with a video session showing what's going down. Developers will of course need to update everything to make sure they can take advantage of the changes coming to OS 15, too.\
Apple announced iOS 15 during its WWDC event last month and the update is currently available as developer and public betas. We're expecting the release to be made available to everyone this fall, likely towards the end of September. New features include improvements to the way notifications are handled, the new Focus mode, and a redesigned Safari interface.
iOS 15 will ship on the new iPhone 13 models and will also be compatible with older devices as well. Can't wait until September to get a new iPhone? Check out the best iPhone deals we could find and snag yourself a bargain iPhone 12 now.
