The Next Version Of iOS Will Finally Let You Download Free Apps Without A Password

Apps are one of the most important parts of our smartphones and it couldn’t be easier to get them. However on iOS, there is one obstacle, your password. Sure, it’s not the end of the world to enter your password when you download an app, but it can be a bit annoying to enter your password in every time you download a free app. Thankfully, Apple is finally changing this in iOS 8.3.

iOS users will be able to visit the App Store and download free apps without worrying about a password. However they will have to enable an option in the settings to allow this. This is a minor change, but it could actually play a big role. From personal experience I know that helping out someone on their iOS device can get annoying when you have to ask them for their password to download an app. Not to mention if you do happen to forget your password, you’ll still be able to download apps.
