iOS 17 will support Apple passkeys at launch and you can try them out today

Starting with iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma, Apple will begin automatically assigning Apple ID owners their very own passkey.

Passkeys, if you’re not familiar with the concept, are a new, more convenient way for signing into personal accounts. Instead of having to remember a username and password, you can enter a simple PIN or use some sort of biometric login – be it a fingerprint or facial scan. Essentially moving forward, you won’t have to enter your full Apple ID credentials when trying to log into an Apple website. All you have to do is enter the passkey. In fact, If you go to Apple’s website and try to sign in, you should see an option for the alternative login method.
