Earlier this week, Apple officially announced the iOS 17 update for iPhones and iPads. The new update brought a host of new features and improvements while allowing third-party apps to support passkey authentication.

Essentially, this would allow users to sign in using biometrics or face ID, eliminating the need of entering passwords. The technology was developed by FIDO Alliance in collaboration with companies like Apple, Google and Microsoft. Apple has supported passkey sign-in on Safari and iCloud Keychain since iOS 16 and with the new update the feature has been open to third-party services as well.

1Password is taking advantage of the iOS 17 update and has announced a new update to enable passkey on its iOS app. The new feature works along with Apple's own Password Manager and offers passkey sign in for various services.
