ELI5: Why don't smartphones have autofill for email and password fields?

almost 6 years ago from , Visual Designer & Illustrator at Egghead.io

Every time I have to retype my email address and passwords on iPhone apps and account logins I go a little bit more crazy.

Why don't we have autofill features on mobile devices? Is it a technical issue?

Disclaimer: Yes this is a shameless #fristworldproblem. Just curious why we haven't solved this small inconvenience yet.
