Create QR Codes With iPhone – –


  1. Open the Shortcuts App
  2. Tap on the upper right corner the Plus “+”
  3. Search for “QR” and you will see two options “Scan QR Code or Barcode” and “Generate QR Code“. Select “Generate QR Code“.
  4. As the “Next Action” select “Save to Photo Album” under the “Next Action Suggestions” section. 
  5. Optional: The action you have generated would now be called “Save to Photo Album”. This you maybe do not like. In order to change this, tab on the title and select “Rename”. Now you provide whatever naming you prefer. I called it “Generate QR Code”
  6. Tab “Done”
  7. In the photo App you now can find your newly created QR code

Once you created the Shortcut, than the best idea ist to simply try and error 🙂
