iOS 6 won't ask for password to download free apps

Passwords aren't a requirement to download free apps in Apple's iOS 6, says Cult of Mac.

iOS 6 users apparently won't have to spend so much time keying in passwords when downloading apps.

Peeking at the third beta of iOS 6, Cult of Mac discovered that users no longer have to enter their password to download free apps, either new ones or programs they've grabbed in the past.

This latest development follows a new feature introduced in iOS 6 beta 1, in which users no longer have to key in their password to download updates or previously-purchased items from Apple's App Store, Cult of Mac added.

Since users will only need to enter their password to download a new paid app, Apple seems to be treading a healthy line between convenience and security.
