    Apple today updated its official Apple Store shopping app with the ability to use Touch ID to securely and conveniently pay for an order with a credit card tied to an Apple ID, as well as make changes to account settings.

    The Apple Store app has long allowed shoppers to pay for purchases with the credit card associated with their Apple ID, but users needed to type their password for authentication. Now, users can simply use Touch ID.

    To pay with a credit card associated with an Apple ID at checkout, tap on the white "buy with other payment options" button.

    Apple said the new Apple Store app also makes its easier to see if an iPhone you want is available at an Apple Store near you.

    The Apple Store app is free on the App Store [Direct Link] for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.

    This Is much welcomed and convenient. At least it gives me the option of not having to use a password where necessary.

    Meanwhile, the rumours are that Touch ID is on the way out...

    And those rumors are likely inaccurate.

    Wait, so for a long time Apple didn't trust TouchId with their own money?

    o_O:p

    Too convenient, I don't like to pay by pressing just one button or this with your fingerprint, I prefer a few steps actually since it makes it harder to make a purchase by "mistake', on the other hand, you have the right to cancel a sale legally within a certain time, the exact time is something like 7 days here I think.


    Yes, most likely.


    I read

    Apple Store App Now Supports Touch ID For Authenticating Payments With Apple ID.

    So my first thought was, how the hell does the Physical Apple store know my fingerprint while it's in the secure enclave.:oops:
    Then I read again!:)




    (App- didn't notice that word)

    I think this is a fair argument. I always appreciate the extra steps for security, but I also like the convenience of Apple Pay. Extra measures seems inconvenient for some, but I like knowing it makes more of a challenge for someone trying to fraudulently authenticate my information.

    Yes, I know, I just stated my preference, am pretty sure I am not the only one.
    If it's for a few $ I don't care, if it's a substantial amount...no thanks.

    Is it not like the App Store purchase where it show a dialog before confirming the purchase? If so, I don’t see how you can press the buy button and mistakenly go through two steps toward purchasing something.

    I think you can also cancel the purchase in the states within a certain time, so in a way it's not too bad, its just my preference, nothing more.

    Whilst I love Apple Pay, both times I’ve used it with the Apple Store app I’ve had issues due to the time between the transaction itself and the item being ready to ship.

    I’ve stuck with it as ordering fast is often required if you want an iPhone or iPad on release day.

    This should mean I can use card payment just as quickly as Apple Pay.

    Is this story correct? I'm almost positive I've used Apple Pay on the Apple Store app, or is this saying it isn't Apple Pay, but just to authenticate the use of the credit card tied to your Apple ID? I'm confused. :)

    Both empty, something going on with your posts or just a brain fart.:)

    The Apple Store has long supported Apple Pay via Touch ID. I believe the only change here is that we're now able to log into our Apple IDs within the app via Touch ID instead of having to log in with our passwords.

    Not a good move. My phone allows my kids to unlock it with touch-id but they don't know the password. So far, that meant they couldn't accidentally or intentionally buy something from the app store. Hopefully this is an opt-in feature.

    No, the article is just confusing to read. They've supported Apple Pay in the app for a long time now (to which I initially thought this was really old news) but they've now extended that to also allow you to make a payment from the credit card on your Apple ID (as in the one you use with iTunes) rather than just those you've set up specifically for Apple Pay.

    You missed the sarcasm

    Fewer steps are better. No one born after 2025 is going to understand what a password is.

    Does that mean I can finally order an iPod Nano through the Apple Store app with Touch ID.

    No, I didn't miss any sarcasm. I was pointing the obvious quote in your post regarding "Rumors" about Touch ID in your post. We already know the discrepancies.

    Second, I'm not to worried about 2025 and your generalization who is born there after. Not every situation will apply to everyone for password authentication based on what the future holds.

    And it will simply change to FaceID when the time comes. Apple'll probably implement the facial recognition with the same framework as with TouchID so apps will automatically work.
