1Password 6.4 for iOS “1-Up Edition” Update Released

1Password for iPhone and iPad has today been updated in the App Store with a bunch of significant updates, taking the app to version 6.4 which the company is referring to as the “1-Up Edition” for iOS. The update brings a new reboot-resistant Touch ID, ability to transfer and import data easily with a new import feature, and a more family-friendly first run setup.

Previously, it was required to re-enter the Master Password in 1Password every time the device was restarted but now, after restarting the device, a new Touch ID restore button will appear near the Master Password field. However, if you prefer the previous Master Password requirement, you can restore it by tapping Settings > Advanced > Security > Require Master Password. It is now also easier to import your data. The new Importer makes your move from 1Password 3 to 1Password 6 even simpler. You can easily import both 1Password 3 backup files and 1Password Interchange Files (1pif).

The first-run experience is now rated FT for Families and Teams. During setup, you can sign in with your 1Password account (Families or Teams) straight away. If you exclusively use a 1Password account, setting up the app for the first time will no longer create an empty Primary vault.

Even more awaits you on your quest for convenient security, such as improved credit card and identity filling, setting a vault name when adding a secondary vault from Dropbox, and much more.
