The iOS 13 Shortcuts app brings plenty of radical changes that include automatic scheduled and location-based shortcuts, but one super-neat new feature will make a world of difference. Now, if you have a compatible iPhone, you can combine NFC tags with Shortcuts. This means you can run any shortcut just by tapping your iPhone onto an NFC sticker.

iOS 13 Shortcuts are a practical tool for Apple’s acquisition of the well-known efficiency application Workflow. In iOS 13, the shortcut has an “automation” option that lets the phone automatically run shortcuts when it identifies an eligible option.

To use the shortcut feature you just need to tap your iPhone onto a sticker atop a speaker in your kitchen, and it would start playing the radio. In iOS 13, you can replace the entire rigmarole with one simple action of tapping the iPhone onto the kitchen speaker.

This is possible because of Shortcuts’ new features in iOS 13. It can run a shortcut when you tap your iPhone on an NFC tag and connect to a specific AirPlay destination. In short, iOS 13 has a zillion ways to run automation. With this new feature, you can always have your own videos app connected to the AirPlay speaker when you open it. This same automation could dim the lights and set the max volume on your iPad.
