It's one of those annoying steps that just seems to get in the way, especially with the fiddly iPhone keyboard and Apple's insistence on one capital letter and one number, so we're happy to see that iOS 6, among other great features, it's doing away with unnecessary password entry.

Naturally, you will still have to enter your password for buying apps and other iOS purchases, but we feel that this is a solid move that will greatly improve the iOS user experience.

iOS 6 is expected to launch sometime this coming spring.

What other features would you like to see implemented in iOS?
