Apple to Unveil New ‘Passwords’ App at WWDC Next Week

Apple is set to introduce a new application called Passwords at its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), according to Bloomberg. This standalone app will help users manage their login credentials across various platforms, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Vision Pro, and even Windows PCs.

Currently, Apple provides a way to save passwords through iCloud Keychain, which syncs across devices like iPhone, iPad, and Vision Pro. The new Passwords app aims to enhance this functionality by organizing logins into different categories, such as accounts, Wi-Fi networks, and passkeys. Notably, it will also support Windows, although there is no mention of Android compatibility yet.

Expected to launch with iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15, Passwords will offer capabilities similar to other password managers like LastPass and 1Password. These include generating and securely storing passwords, and autofilling login details.

Additionally, Bloomberg highlights that the app will feature the ability to create and manage authentication codes, akin to services provided by Google Authenticator.

Apple’s WWDC on June 10th promises to reveal several new features, with speculation around enhancements in artificial intelligence for iOS 18 and significant updates for Siri.
