In the “Password Settings” of your Apple device, as long as you’re using iOS 8.3, you’ll be able to set up your gadget so that free apps and media can be downloaded without having to use your Apple ID.
Touch ID must be disabled in order to take advantage of this, according to 9to5Mac.The reason for this is that making purchasing simply by using a tap of your fingerprint might not work out quite so well for some.It has been a problem for users for many years when downloading free apps, but now this problem seems to have been eliminated.There is now a completely new option for “Require Password”.
By changing it to “On”, you’ll be able to download books, music, apps and movies as long as they’re free, and you won’t have to input your Apple ID in order to do so.However, not all regions have reported seeing this change. In addition, if the app or media requires payment, you’ll need to enter your ID.You can also opt to change your settings so that the password is only required after 15 minutes of not downloading anything, and this also applies in purchases in-app.
The previous iOS versions will have Settings > General > Restrictions > Require Password, so users can access password settings this way.
Some people may recall that iOS 6 offered users the chance to omit entering their passwords for free app downloads. However, an update saw this change, but nobody ever really knew why Apple changed it.
The most recent beta of iOS 8.3 was registered on March 12th, and was available by invite through the Apple Beta Software Program.
