Support for physical security keys, which can be used as an additional layer of protection for an Apple ID, has been added to the iOS 16.3, iPadOS 16.3, and macOS Ventura 13.2 betas that developers have received today.
Last week, Apple announced the new feature and said it would be available in 2023. This coincides with when we anticipate iOS 16.3 and its companion updates to be available. Security Keys for Apple ID will furnish clients with the choice to add an outsider security key to their record, which will be required for verification while signing into another gadget or in any case getting to a Apple ID.
The Security Key is intended to supplant the confirmation codes that are shipped off Apple gadgets while signing into another gadget, which is the standard strategy for verification that Apple utilizes. Physical security keys, according to Apple, offer a robust defense against phishing and unauthorized account access.
Security Keys can be set up on gadgets running the beta by going to Apple ID > Security Keys and adhering to the guidelines. FIDO Certified security keys are supported by the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
