App Clips are shortcuts to app experiences. 

An App Clip, as the company explains, is a small part of an app experience that is designed to be discovered the moment it is needed.

Additionally, they can be used by a business or an that connects several businesses.

App Codes can be easily discovered and accessed by scanning a new Apple-designed App Clip code or via NFC tags and QR codes. Additionally, App Clip codes can be shared in Messages or from Safari, all with the security and privacy expected from apps.

"With beautifully redesigned widgets on the Home Screen, the App Library that automatically organizes all of your apps, and App Clips that are fast and easy to discover, iPhone becomes even more powerful and easier to use,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement.
