    Update - seen the answer in another thread. Doesn't look like it's possible

    Hi,
    I want to use Apple Pay on my 6 Plus but don't want to use the touch ID to unlock my phone every time. Is there a way of doing this?
    Thanks.

    It's not possible. Touch ID is the only means of security for Apple Pay, so there's no other option.

    I don't mind using touch ID for Apple pay, but I don't want to use it to unlock my phone. It takes too long

    It takes you longer to use TouchID to unlock your phone than using "slide-to-unlock" and typing in your passcode?

    I don't use a pass code, so using touch ID takes longer than just slide to unlock.

    Really? All I do is just press the home button once to get the screen on then leave my finger/thumb and it immediately unlocks. Sometimes when all I want to view is the time I end up unlocking my iPhone because it's fast. I really would be surprised if you were faster or saved that much time. Also a lot of apps now allow for Touch ID which is much faster than typing in a username and password each time.

    It can't be done. Unlocking with touch ID doesn't take long. Just press the home button and leave your finger there and it'll unlock. To me it's quicker than sliding to unlock, because in that scenario you have to wake up your phone by pressing the home or lock button and then sliding across the screen.

    Okay, pressing the home button and leaving my thumb on is quick. I was hitting the home button, sliding and then using the touch ID.
    Thanks for the help!

    Nope and that is the reason I do not use Apple pay as touch id works poorly for me.

    Got to have touch id to us Apple Pay.

    This changes with iOS 9

    All you do is double tap the home key and Apple pay appears so wait until that arrives do the update and then you will no longer be required to sign in.

    Did not know that. What does the user do to verify he is authorized to use the Apple Pay.

    Just scan your fingerprint like you would unlocked.

    You'd still need to use TouchID to actually use Apple Pay even if you can bring up your wallet with a double tap of the home key (which often would be enough to already unlock the phone anyway with TouchID).

    I didn't do anything. This is a capital one debit card from my 360 checking. Maybe capital one forget to upload the right picture for your card?
