1Password 6.0 for iOS 9

1Password 6.0 for iOS 9


1Password isn’t just an essential password manager. It is an essential service if you use the internet. 1Password 6.0 for iOS 9 makes the app even better thanks to full support for iOS 9 features.

The visual overhaul adds a good amount of Bits Blue as they call it to the app along with nice new glyphs for categories and updates to the rich icons. 1Password 6.0 also includes a new Diceware Password Generator that allows long password creation with real words. iOS 9’s spotlight search is also fully supported to find things quickly without launching the app and tapping around. If you own an iPad Air 2 like me, split view is fully supported and it looks great. I wish the standard portrait view didn’t have an interface line overlapping the clock in the status bar though. Other additions and improvements include more categories on Apple Watch, better landscape support on iPhone, and improvements to 1Browser.

1Password 6.0 is still a free app with basic features unlocked and if you bought the Pro unlock in 1Password 5, those features remain unlocked in 6.0. 1Password is available for free on the App Store with an optional (I really recommend getting this) Pro in app purchase that costs $9.99.
