iOS 11 supports QR scanning using the Camera app. And you can use websites make your own QR codes. But they're all a bit clunky. There's now an easy way to create your own QR codes, right on your iPhone or iPad.

Using Visual Codes app, you'll be able to quickly generate a QR code. You can share it on the web, print out a poster featuring the QR code, or just prop it up and let other devices scan the code. When you're in public and you need a quick way to let users connect to a Wi-Fi network, this feature can be really helpful.

Step 3: From the Create Code section, provide the details for what happens once the QR code is scanned. For the website option, it will be a URL.

Step 4: Once the detailed are all filled up, tap on Create Code.

You'll be back to the Home screen. Tap on the QR code and you'll see a full preview of it.
