During Monday's WWDC conference Apple announced App Clips, which are small snippets of an app that let you interact with them without downloading a full app.
Apple Senior Vice President Craig Federighi introduced App Clips as a staple part of iOS 14. With App Clips, users can view information or make purchases from a "card" interface rather than downloading a full app.
Previously users browsing Apple Maps would need to download Yelp or Open Table in order to view the third-party content within the app. Now, App Clips will surface the information from within the app by downloading a small portion of the app.
The App Clips are designed to be small, less than 10MB, and offer the latest in Apple tech like Apple Pay and Sign-In With Apple. App clips will not show up on the home screen, but will be available in the App Library.
