Many ways. For example:

1. You can make a simple code that will save the username and password in the app settings (NSUserDefaults):

save:
[[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] setObject:userName forKey:@"user_name"];
[[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] setObject:password forKey:@"password"];
[[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] synchronize];

restore:
userName  = [[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] stringForKey:@"user_name"];
password = [[NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults] stringForKey:@"password"];

2. Use Keychain Access
