Apple might reveal a new ‘Passwords’ app next week

No word about support for Android

Apple is planning to introduce a new app called Passwords to help users manage their login information across iPhone, iPad, Mac, Vision Pro, and Windows PCs. The company will reportedly introduce the device at its Worldwide Developers Conference event next week.

Apple already lets you save your passwords across your iPhone, iPad, or Vision Pro using iCloud Keychain. The new app would sync the same way but with logins separated into different categories, such as accounts, Wi-Fi networks, and passkeys. However, Bloomberg says the new Passwords app would extend support for Windows as well — there’s no word about support for Android.

Rumors pointing to new AI features

The new app is expected to make its debut in iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15. As noted by Bloomberg, Passwords will be able to generate and store passwords, similar to password managers such as LastPass and 1Password.

Other features highlighted by Bloomberg include autofill for usernames and passwords, as well as the ability to create authentication codes, like Google Authenticator.

Apple is expected to reveal a bunch of new features during WWDC on June 10th, with rumors pointing to new AI features for the iPhone in iOS 18, along with a major overhaul for Siri.
