Next Version of iOS will brign You Password-less Downloading

More Comfortable

An interesting upcoming feature of the next version of Apple’s famous iOS operating system is that it will allow you to download applications and other content without a Password. This feature will be enable in iOS 8.3. it will make easier for developers of free applications to acquire new users.

Thanks to a new option that has been found under the “iTunes & App Store” section with the iOS Settings application, iOS device owners will be able to disable the password requirement for free apps and other kind of downloads. It means they will now be able to just tap the “Get” button on iTunes to download the app to their device, no password necessary.

 This is a relatively small change, but for mobile app developers, it could be a significant advantage that will boost the popularity of their applications by attracting more and more users. It is a fact that for a lot of iPhone and iPad consumers, downloading new mobile applications is not a frequent activity.

 Studies, that have been made in a past few years, have shown that, despite the popularity of smartphones and other mobile devices, a large number of users do not download any app for a long time. The ratio of their download per month is absolutely zero. 

Instead, the top 7 percent of smartphone owners account for nearly half of all the download activity in a given month, comScore has said in the past. In other words, there are those who regularly download apps, and there are those who only download new apps once an app reaches the status of being a “must have.” For this latter group of users, they seem to be relatively content to use their phone as is, after the initial setup is complete and their preferred apps are installed. As to why that that’s the case is less clear.

 We are of the view that this decision has been taken due to the difficulties in discovering new apps in App Store nowadays, or it could that many of the people just do not feel the need to try new apps on a regular basis once they have their phone set up with the basics. 

 But to some extent, people’s decision to refrain from trying new apps could also be due to simple technical hurdles – like not being able to remember their Apple account information. They may then give up on downloads they would have otherwise been interested in, after being unable to authenticate with iTunes. 

 The setting, which was first spotted by 9to5Mac following a reader tip, was currently disabled on devices running the iOS 8.3 beta, but it should go live when the updating operating system is released publicly. Of course, things can change between then and now, but it’s interesting at least that Apple has considered how to address this challenge. 

 The company, in the past, had allowed users to download applications for free without requiring a password, the post notes, but it later changed that behavior much to some users’ frustration. It is important to remember that this setting only pops up when Touch ID is disabled on an iDevice, which is clearly still Apple’s preferred method for making downloads easier for security. In addition, the password requirement remains at it place for paid applications, as there’s not an option to disable the setting for all types of downloads. And it works for other iTunes content, too, including music, books, movies and more.
