Little by little, hidden novelties of the new Apple operating systems are being discovered. This is the case of iOS 16 and the ability to bypass the hateful CAPTCHA within websites and apps. According to a video shared by those from Cupertino, Apple’s system will be able to offer an “access token” as long as it can be verified that the device and the Apple ID are in optimal working order.
The function will be present in iOS 16 and can be activated in the Settings section, Apple ID, Passwords and security, and Automatic verification. When activated, those of Cupertino indicates that iCloud will automatically verify our device and the account in the background. The next time you come across a CAPTCHA message, you will no longer have to fill it in manually. The system will undoubtedly offer a better experience to be able to start sessions or create accounts in different services. The most significant advantage is that privacy and accessibility are improved without compromising data delivery or interacting with the CAPTCHA itself.
The good news that joins this main one is that services like Cloudflare and Fastly have announced compatibility with this type of function like Apple’s. Any device that has a private access token will be able to access different services or websites that include CAPTCHA. It is an important advance made by Apple since it can be implemented over time to other platforms to cover most of the Internet. If you’ve already installed the iOS 16 or iPadOS 16 beta, the feature is already activated. It will also be available on macOS Ventura.
After several days or weeks, interesting features are always revealed that are usually hidden until the situation can be echoed. As in this case, Apple has already revealed the existence of bypassing CAPTCHAs and this means a good start to the new cycle of apple operating systems.
