Apple's next iPhone operating system, iOS 14, has been in the news for quite some time. In March, it was reported that the Cupertino-based company would bring a new AR app called 'Gobi' and the company would add new features to its existing Find My app with the next-gen software version. Now, a new report is stating that the 'Gobi' app will be able to scan traditional QR codes as well as Apple-branded QR codes that take users to specific Apple product pages. It was added that Find My App will get new sound cues to search for lost Apple devices.

The development was highlighted by former TechCrunch reporter Josh Constine in a blog post published on Monday. Dumb files from the Gobi app were provided to Constine by a source. According to the blog post, 'Gobi' files contained QR codes that opened up Mac Pro and Apple Watch websites and Star Wars: Rogue One movies in the iTunes Store. It was added that the Starbucks QR code led to the Starbucks card sign-up page. It is also rumored that the Gobi app may use location data to claim discounts to customers at some Starbucks stores.

Apple QR codes have also been seen in Gopi App icons and Gopi App files in blog posts. Some of these QR codes were first highlighted by a Twitter user who goes by the name Unknownz21 (@URedditor) last week.

In his blog Constine also hinted that the Apple Find My app could provide new sound and vibration cues to help users find their Apple device with voice notes.

You will hear encouraging sounds when facing the right direction, so the lost gadget is for you. " ahead. "When you're 'around', or get within 'Arms Reach," "discouraging tone hints that you're definitely taking the edge," wrote Consta

To recall, the development of the rumored Gobi app was first reported back in March, where it was speculated that Apple plans to enhance the AR experience with iOS. Similarly, Find My App was also rumored to receive new AR features in the next generation iPhone operating system. Apple is set to unveil iOS 14 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2020 in June, which will be an online-only event.
