Modified in next update.

Apple will modify the security rules for app downloads in iOS 6, ditching the requirement to enter passwords for free app downloads and updates.

Paid applications will still require passwords.

The new feature was revealed as part of Apple's iOS 6 beta 3, released to Apple developers last week.

Apple's first beta of the updated operating system similarly dropped Apple ID requirement for app downloads.

iOS 6 is expected to launch later this year, around the same time as the next-generation iPhone.
