AWS Amplify now supports Sign in with Apple (SIWA), making it easier for app developers to reach a broad base of Apple users. SIWA supplements Amplify’s currently supported Identity Providers (Google, Facebook, and Amazon), and continues to allow developers to easily enable social sign-in to their applications, even without AWS experience.
Using the Amplify Admin UI, developers have the option to manage their private key for their new environment. The Admin UI now supports directly uploading app’s private key, keeping secrets secure and configurable. Setting up SIWA in a new or cloned environment is just as simple since the Amplify console warns of already existing SIWA set ups. Using this in addition to the authentication client libraries, which provide a simple API interface to build custom login experiences for your app in a few lines of code, makes setting up authentication simple and straightforward.
SIWA for Amplify Admin UI is fully hosted and available in 12 AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London).
