If you thought finding out the clock icon in iOS 7 actually shows the current time was mind-boggling, then this will really scorch your shorts. The iOS 7 Beta allows you to redeem iTunes Gift Cards with your iPhone’s camera!
The App Store in iOS 7 now allows you to redeem iTunes cards using your camera […] The ability to read barcodes is now built into iOS 7, allowing other developers – not just Apple – to take advantage of it. There are, of course, already a whole bunch of shopping apps that scan barcodes, but it’ll now be something any developer can easily add to any relevant app. Apple hasn’t yet incorporated the functionality into the stock iOS 7 camera app.
Being the investigative journalist I am, my first though upon seeing this news was how come no love for iTunes Store users? But fear not, oh musically inclined ones, the camera looks to work just fine in the iTunes Store as well, so rest your fingers and let the magic of OCR do your work for you.
