The cool cats at AgileBits have just released 1Password 6.2 for iOS, adding in a heaping helping of changes along the way:

Smarter Searching: The company’s made changes to the Search tool, and you can now search from the Favorites and Organize tabs, in addition to the Categories tab.

Users can also use a Search Titles feature as well as a Search Everything feature.


Watchtower: This monitors the latest security vulnerabilities from around the web and alerts you when your own accounts might need attention. To start using Watchtower, go to Settings > Security and tap the switch. If an item has a potential vulnerability, you’ll see it in the item’s details view.

Items can now be copies or moved across vaults. All you need to do is view the item’s details and tap Move and Copy button at the bottom. Then, select the vault to which you’d like to move or copy the item.

Peek and Pop: This adds support for the 3D Touch feature found on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets. The option allows you to add a new item, view your favorites, or bring up search in 1Password.

If you want quickly look at an item, find it as you normally would. Instead of tapping on it, give it a light 3D Touch to take a Peek, then press a little harder to Pop into its details view. Or, Peek at an item, then swipe up to to copy a field or open a login in 1Browser.

1Password 6.2 for iOS retails for $9.99 and requires iOS 9.0 or later to install and run. If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.
