iCloud Keychain is a new feature in iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks that syncs your Safari website usernames and passwords, credit card information, and Wi-Fi network information across your Apple devices.
This post describes how you can set up iCloud Keychain on your iOS device.
Earlier this week at Apple’s latest media event, the Cupertino company finally released the newest Mac operating system: OS X Mavericks, to the world. Alongside this release came a more silent release of iOS 7.0.3 which brought with it full iCloud Keychain compatibility to go along with Mavericks. If you’re unaware of what iCloud Keychain allows you to do, think of it like browser saved passwords, for all of your Apple devices. Once you have set up this new feature, you’ll be able to sign into all of your favorite websites in Safari without having entered any of your passwords. It even stores your credit card details for purchases. Don’t worry, the data is all encrypted locally, so Apple won’t be handling all of your credit card numbers without your permission.
As with everything Apple, the setup process is relatively hassle-free, with the only slight issue I ran into being a prerequisite setting which I had altered in the past. I’ll be walking you though every step to setup this new feature in the video walkthrough that can be found below. This new addition certainly is welcome to anyone who regularly uses Safari on their iOS devices. I, myself, tend to use Google Chrome more than Safari, but that’s purely because I regularly switch between both iOS and Android. If your main platform is iOS, it makes sense to use Safari for the extra speed that it brings. The addition of a cloud-based Keychain syncing service is a big win for Apple in the browser department.
You know the scenario — you try to take a creative photo by applying a filter and then hate how it turns out.
You decide to snap another shot, but the moment is gone, and you are left with an ugly photo of a beautiful scene. If you used iOS 7 to snap your photo, then you are fortunate as you may be able to remove that offending filter.
One of the major new features in iOS 7 is the all-new Photos app to go along with the redesigned Camera app, which we covered few days back.
If you were unhappy with the endless stream of photos in your Camera roll that you’ve clicked over the years, then Apple has finally come to the rescue in iOS 7 with “faster, easier, and more delightful ways to scroll down memory lane”.
