Twitter is reportedly working on a lot of features to enhance the user experience. The latest feature that the micro-blogging site was spotted testing would let iOS users sign in to the Twitter app using their Apple ID.
The feature was spotted in the beta build. Twitter has not made it available to the public yet. Most services these days allow you to sign up using your Gmail account or Facebook ID without having to create one. Twitter wants to make it simpler for Apple users by letting them sign in using their Apple ID.
Reportedly, Tipster Jane Manchun Wong first spotted the development and posted the screenshots on Twitter. She wrote, “Twitter is working on Apple Sign-In integration, as indicated in- the entry description for “Connected accounts” settings page (WIP)- the “Connected accounts” settings page (WIP)- the CSP header of https://twitter.com/’s HTTP response. The Connected accounts list very strongly suggests that Twitter is considering Appel sign in.
Notably, in order to sign in with Apple, users will have to use two-factor authentication. “Apps that use a third-party or social login service (such as Facebook Login, Google Sign-In, Sign in with Twitter, Sign In with LinkedIn, log in with Amazon, or WeChat Login) to set up or authenticate the user’s primary account with the app must also offer Sign in with Apple as an equivalent option. A user’s primary account is the account they establish with your app for the purposes of identifying themselves, signing in, and accessing your features and associated services.” Apple’s FAQ page says.
