    this is my banks app.
    Its was one of the 3 Major Banks incorporating apple pay in Australia.

    They seem to be pretty with it.

    The touch id is represented by an 'onscreen touchid' logo. If its interacted with it asks for you to touch the onscreen button to touchid.

    This was not there a month ago..

    Interesting...

    While I think you're looking into this waaaaay too much and it's all a coincidence, Chase bank in the US just added the attached

    Edit: Apparently a screenshot is too much for the server to handle as the file is "too large"

    I know what you’re thinking :D and no, that doesn’t mean anything. Apps put the icon all over the place.

    But Siri is the giveaway. And nobody figured it out but me. :D

    As an ANZ customer I've seen this button for a long time now. It's only there so you can use Touch ID to log in if you accidentally cancel the initial Touch ID login.

    I can confirm it shows before you even attempt to touch id

    This is indeed very cool. If not Analyst Kuo recently that said touchID won't be on the iphone 8, i would have been very happy about your post.

    i agree. I did start seeing this icon around the time we had to touch id inbuilt to the screen rumors (i may be wrong). Maybe they jumped the gun a bit haha

    1 Password also has the Touch ID icon when you open the app, its to allow the user to use password input to unlock their vault or to use Touch ID.

    It's just a way to log in with TouchID if you've accidentally clicked "Cancel" on the initial TouchID prompt.

    That was also initially presumed as being a clue to the screen touch id.

    Seems strange theyre all adding this 'notification' feature just before ios11? Correct me if im wrong touch id has been around for how long now??
