Apple Unveils Passwordless Feature in iOS 16 and macOS Ventura | #ios | #apple | #iossecurity


Apple Announces Passkeys

Apple has revealed that it will be making a big push to get rid of passwords when iOS 16 launches later next month. The new feature, dubbed Passkeys, will allow users to login to their various accounts with Touch ID and Face ID on their phone. Thanks to integration with iCloud Keychain, you’ll be able to sign in on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV with end-to-end encryption.

“People almost always have phones with them,” said Darin Adler, VP of internet technologies at Apple in an exclusive interview with Tom’s Guide. “Face ID and Touch ID verification give you the convenience and biometrics we can achieve with an iPhone. You don’t have to buy another device, but also you don’t even have to learn a new habit.”

This technology obviously isn’t new, with Google implementing similar technology in Pixel devices and other Android phones. Still, it’s a huge step in the right direction to get more users on board with a passwordless future, considering US buyers are more inclined to buy iPhones than any other phone.
