1Password 5.1 adds iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus support, Touch ID improvements

1Password for iPhone and iPad has been updated to version 5.1 with support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, along with other improvements and fixes. These include changes to how Touch ID works with the app, along with fixes for Dropbox syncing and more.

1Password 5.1 now combines auto-lock time outs for Touch ID/PIN Code and the master password. This allows Touch ID to appear more reliably within the 1Password extension. You will still need your master password after a device restart or when fingerprint authentication fails, but the Touch ID experience should be more consistant after this update.

There are other small improvements and fixes. You can now add new tags to your items. You can choose to enable or disable third-party keyboards while in 1Password in the Advanced Settings. Dropbox syncing issues have also been addressed.

1Password 5.1 for iPhone and iPad is rolling out on the App Store right now.
