So upon a fresh factory reset you'll notice the very first screen of Setup Wizard (the screen with the little dudes painting and whatnot). If you tap the middle of the screen 7 times then you actually are sent into a different "hidden" QR Code Setup. It will ask to connect to the internet and then download the Camera app or QR Scanner app and then put you into camera mode and wait for you to scan a business QR code. Just curious if anybody else ever found this or know how to use it. I'm guessing that it's probably something like MDM (Mobile Device Management) for corporate iPhones/iPads but I have no idea.

Anybody got a spare QR code that I can use to mess around with that part of Setup?? (No, normal QR codes do not work and yes, I understand these QR codes are for businesses so please don't just reprimand me for asking.)

I've never used it, but this is a cool find! The QR code it's looking for probably points to a custom "image" used for setting up new devices - that way the IT department doesn't have to manually configure every setting.

I could see it being used to automatically disable features, set up VPN, corporate email etc.
