Apple’s iPhone isn’t always a good pairing for Microsoft’s Windows 10 PCs, but you’ll be able to use the phone’s biometric authentication features to log into PCs.
Microsoft wants to kill passwords with Windows Hello, a technology that allows users to log into PCs by fingerprint, face, iris or pattern detection. Beyond Windows 10 devices, the feature is also coming to devices, accessories and apps that support Windows Hello.
Apple’s iPhone will be able to use such an accessory or app to log into Windows 10. At its Ignite conference this week, Microsoft said iPhone owners can use specific RSA SecurID authentication tools on their devices to unlock Windows 10 PCs.
