App Clips get you the apps you need right when you need them

Phones
Let's turn to the App Store. 12 years ago, we revolutionized the industry with the launch of the App Store. Today, we have so many amazing apps that offer a rich set of experiences. We can truly say that for everything we wanna do, there's an app for that. What if you could have the right app, you need it at just the right moment? Let's look at what it would be like if you did. Today, no matter what you wanna do, there's an app for that. But what if you don't have the app you need right when you need it, like when you need to pay for parking? Well, now there's an app click for that. A new coffee shop. There's an app click for that. [MUSIC] Or your friend sends you a message with a print you like. There's an AppClip for that. That looks nice, looking for somewhere to eat nearby, AppClip is very health conscious of you. Hey, there's a scooter. Let's take it for a spin. Yep, AppClip. [MUSIC] Ice cream, wait, there isn't one for that yet, well, soon there could be an app clip for that and that, and that and that and that. [MUSIC] An app clip is a small part of an app, it's light and fast and easy to discover so you can quickly get what you need right when you need it. Everything about app clips is designed for speed. They start with this card which quickly pops up. And with just a tap, you can launch the app clip. You don't need to enter credit card numbers, because app clips can use Apple Pay for payments. And you don't have to manually log into an account because it can take advantage of sign in with Apple. App clips won't clutter your homescreen and will only stay along as long as you need them. But you can easily launch recently used app clips from the new app library. It's always easy to download the full app. And this makes app clips an easy way to discover more of what the app store has to offer. And discovery is key. App Clips are all about getting to a part of an app, at the moment you need it. So it was critical that we made them really easy to find. App Clips can be easily discovered and launched from the web. You can launch App Clip from messages, when friend share them with you, when you wanna order take out from a restaurant in maps. You can launch an App Clip right from a place card. You'll be able to tap on NFC tags out in the world on things like parking meters. Or you can scan QR codes to launch app clips that work with products you purchase. The best way to discover app clips will be with a new Apple designed app clip code. When you see one, you'll know that there's an app clip waiting for you. Incorporate both visual code and NFC. So you tap on them or scan them with a camera to bring up an app clip. App clips will be great for businesses that already have apps. But we wanna be able to use App clips everywhere, including smaller spots that may not have their own app. So we made it possible for apps like Yelp, which support multiple businesses, to create App Clip experiences for each of the places they work with. Developers will create App Clips from a part of an app using Xcode and the full power of the SDK. To ensure that they launch quickly, they'll need to be less than 10 megabytes in size. And that's app clips, immediately discoverable small in size so they launch fast, integrated Apple Pay for easy payment. Sign in with Apple for quick and privacy friendly login, and the option to download the full app from the App Store when you want to keep it around.
