The web is no longer what it used to be. Where before we could enter portals and read information without delay, now we must break through a “wall” of warnings cookiesrecommendations or promotions. Apple wants iOS 16 to spare us some of these inconveniences and it looks like it will get there if apps and web pages follow suit.
Proving you’re human won’t mean writing letters and numbers
In the beta version of iOS 16, an option was found enabled by default to be able to disable the so-called ‘CAPTCHA’the images with distorted characters that we have to write to prove that we are a person and not an algorithm trying to connect pretending to be someone.
This way, web pages and apps that have these CAPTCHAs will be detected by iOS 16 and their users can skip the step. Security authentication will be provided by the Apple ID itself, which in turn will provide a more secure way to quickly register user accounts with a service.
This, yes, web pages will need to add the necessary code so iPhones can do it. It therefore depends on its developers that this new function of iOS 16 succeeds. They have this summer to prepare.
