1Password for iOS Gains Improved Spotlight Integration in Latest Update


Today, Developer AgileBits pushed an update to its password-management utility 1Password.

The latest version (6.3) brings improved integration with iOS 9’s enhanced Spotlight Search, as well as expanded Voice Over support, the ability to pick a vault at launch, better syncing, updated translations, and various bug fixes.

The “Spring Forward Edition” of 1Password for iOS lets you pick which vault is shown when you launch the app by introducing a new setting called “Always Open To.” The update also allows you to find your 1Password items faster, giving users the ability to search for a specific site’s password using iOS 9’s system-wide Spotlight Search.

Improved VoiceOver support now includes additional user interface elements like the vault picker button and the QR codes used for 1Password for Families and Teams.

1Password for iOS is available as a free download from the App Store. The app requires any device running iOS 9.0 or later and has been optimized for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The app also offers a WatchKit component for your Apple Watch, allowing you to access items that have been tagged.
