No more CAPTCHA code solving on iPhones! Isn't that a big relief? For years, we have been subjected to those pesky CAPTCHA codes while logging into our online banking portal, or some other social media verification system. They may enhance the security but they are outright annoying. With iOS 16 though, Apple is bringing a workaround with the CAPTCHA code thing. The feature will rely on iCloud to verify your device and account in the background to prevent CAPTCHA code verification.

Based on a report from MacRumours, the iOS 16 update will support the ability to bypass CAPTCHA verification code in supported apps and websites. The feature will have to enabled by going into Settings > Apple ID > Password & Security > Automatic Verification inside iOS 16. After enabling the feature, iCloud will automatically and privately verify the device and Apple ID account in the background that will stop applications and websites to prompt CAPTCHA verification.

CAPTCHA on iPhones: It ends with iOS 16

Apple had shared earlier that this feature will work with Cloudflare and Fastly platforms – only these two will support the Private Access Tokens. This should cover most websites at the moment but Apple could be working with web developers for making it easy in the future.

In the beta version of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, it is said that the Automatic Verification is enabled by default. Additionally, Apple is will also bring it to Macs with macOS Ventura.

Other than this, iOS 16 also adds several minor yet notable additions to make the overall user experience better. Face ID, for one, will be able to verify your face in landscape orientation, especially with the newer iPhone models. iOS 16 also enhances the typing experience on the keyboard by adding haptic feedback, which has been missing on iPhones for years. Haptic feedback on keyboard has been a staple on Android phones for years and it finally comes to the iPhone later this year.

The biggest change, however, is the ability to customise your lockscreen. iPhone users will now be able to change the look and feel of the clock with fonts, colours, and text sizes. Additionally, users will be able to put portrait mode photos with 3D effects. There are also new additions to Family Sharing, as well as improvements to Focus modes.
