An early iOS 14 build was leaked in February and then circulated online among hackers

Lately, we have come across some major iOS 14 leaks such as a Clips system for testing apps, a redesigned multitasking interface, and a new app for scanning custom Apple QR codes to name a few. It appears that these details originated from a leaked iOS 14 build that has been making rounds of the security and jailbreaking community since February.

As per a Vice report, the leaked version is dated December 2019 and is widely being circulated among hackers and security researches since then. Sources claim that an iPhone 11 running an early build of iOS 14 was purchased by vendors in China and then the internal build was extracted from it, eventually making it to the hands of many people.

Security experts who examined the code of iOS 14’s leaked build claim it provides an unusually high amount of information about an unreleased Apple software. Notably, this build was traded on Twitter and has been distributed in the jailbreaking community too. But this is a very early build, which means a lot could change when the final version is released in September.

iOS 14 might introduce a new AR app to read custom Apple QR codes

The next iteration of Apple’s mobile OS, tentatively called iOS 14, might introduce a new augmented reality app called Gobi. The app will help scan custom Apple QR codes that rely on colorful patterns such as cones of varied sizes and a unique central pattern instead of a matrix of random dots we see on typical QR codes.

The leak, which comes courtesy of former TechCrunch reporter Josh Constine, includes QR code files that opened destinations such as Mac Pro and Apple Watch websites, Star Wars: Rogue One movie listing in iTunes Store, and even a Starbucks Card sign-up prompt among others.

It appears these custom QR cards will also be used for some form of commerce partnership. For example, certain QR codes will help users score discounts and other offers at Starbucks outlets based on location data. iOS 14 will also make a few improvements to Apple’s Find My app by introducing haptic and sound cues to help users find their device.
