Originally discovered by a Reddit user, it seems that there is one feature that made its way into iOS 6’s beta that might be a welcome change for iOS users. According to the report, it seems that in iOS 6, the Apple iTunes App Store no longer asks the user for their password when updating apps or when downloading free apps. In case you didn’t know, when downloading apps, even free ones, or when updating apps, the iTunes App Store usually requires the user to key in their iTunes store password. Granted it’s not a huge inconvenience, but we’re sure that there are plenty of iOS users out there who wouldn’t mind skipping a step or two.
At the moment it is unknown if this feature will be making its way into the final version of iOS 6, or if it was simply a mistake on Apple’s part and they forgot to implement that particular security feature. Either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled, but what do you guys think? Would you prefer it if the iTunes App Store no longer bothered you with passwords when downloading free apps or while updating, or do you think that this is an essential security feature that should be kept?
