APPLE is about to rid us of the internet’s most annoying thing in its next big iOS update for iPhone.
The tech giant is working on a way for us to stop doing those irritating CAPTCHA challenges.
These are weird tests where they ask you to choose things like traffic lights or tractors from a selection of images.
Sometimes they ask you to type random letters and numbers which are written in a weird way.
CAPTCHA is designed to help computer systems detect that you are a human and not a robot.
But as the machines got smarter to outrun them, the challenges got trickier – and arguably more frustrating.
According to a screenshot of an iOS 16 beta tester, Apple is working on a very useful way to automatically complete these tests for you.
A setting under the Password and Security bit of the new OS has an auto-check option.
The description reads: “Bypass CAPTCHAs in apps and on the web by allowing iCloud to automatically and privately verify your device and account.”
It’s definitely one of those little updates that would make a huge difference.
