What does the new Passwords app offer?

While Apple already allows users to save passwords across iPhones, iPads, or Vision Pros using iCloud Keychain, the new Passwords app is speculated to provide a similar syncing capability but with logins categorised into different groups such as accounts, Wi-Fi networks, and passkeys. The new app is likened to popular password managers like 1Password and LastPass. Reports suggest it will facilitate password generation and tracking.

The application aims to simplify the process further by enabling autofill for saved passwords into websites and apps. It may also function as an authenticator app, supporting verification similar to Google's Authenticator app. The debut of the new app is expected with the release of iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15.
