    During the keynote they said that the new Touch ID API uses the iOS Keychain. Does that mean that the user must have Keychain turned on or that it uses behind the scene implementation of it. I don't use keychain currently (nor do I want to) but definitely will want to use Touch ID with third party apps.

    iCloud Keychain does not have to be turned on for that feature. iOS has always had an old device keychain where applications could store passwords and such in a secure nature.
