Your iPhone passwords will be replaced with Passkeys, which will allow you to login using only Face ID and Touch ID.
Apple are scrapping passwords across iPhones after developing new software which will keep private information more secure.
Soon, passwords will be a thing of the past for iPhone users and will instead be replaced with Passkeys.
Passkeys will allow iPhone users to sign in using Face ID and Touch ID instead of a physical written password which can easily be guessed, leaked or hacked.
This new software will be rolled out with the latest Apple update, iOS 16, which is reported to be arriving in only four weeks time.
According to The Sun, iOS 16 is set to go live in September.
These password changes were announced back in June 2022 at Apple's WWDC event.
Passkeys will be stored on your devices, and you can sync them across multiple devices using Apple's iCloud Keychain.
No one, including Apple, will be able to read your Passkeys.
