Apple appears to be backtracking just a bit with iOS 7 to ensure customers receive the best possible experience. The company removed the iCloud Keychain feature from the iOS 7 GM, though it was available in all other betas prior to this one. Apple has also updated the iOS 7 feature page to reflect the change, which now indicates that the feature is “Coming Soon.”
It’s possible Apple only briefly allowed developers access to identify and address smaller issues, and is now retracting the feature to make sure customers can use it without any issues. The iCloud Keychain is a very smart tool as it has the ability to store passwords, website logins, credit card info, and Wi-Fi networks on any Apple device running iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks. This comes in handy when you own multiple devices and need quick access to all of your information on each of them. Even so, this feature has brought out many critics who questioned how safe it is for them to store all of their information in the cloud.
Apple has announced that iOS 7 will be available to the public on September 18th, which means the iCloud Keychain feature will become available soon after or possibly alongside OS X Mavericks.
