Apple today updated its Apple Store app for iOS to version 3.3, adding additional security and convenience features to the app. There's now a "Touch ID" option in the Account section of the app that allows users to enable Touch ID for viewing orders, accessing EasyPay receipts, and making reservations at an Apple Store.

Previously, these sections of the app required an Apple ID password to be input whenever they were accessed, but now the app will ask for Touch ID verification in lieu of a password when Touch ID is toggled on. Before the update, Touch ID usage was limited to Apple Pay for making purchases, but with the expanded Touch ID capabilities, accessing various sections of the app to get order information is much quicker.

Today's update also adds support for two-step verification within the Apple Store app.

What's New in Version 3.3
- Use Touch ID to view orders, access EasyPay receipts, and make reservations at an Apple Store.
- Support for two-step verification, giving you extra security for your Apple ID.

Apple's Apple Store app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Update 4:35 AM PT: The app is also now available in additional countries, including Czech Republic, Denmark, Singapore, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.

But can they give us an option for it to use location services when the app is open, so I can use it to buy stuff in-store easily, but not run constantly in the background for the 362 days a year that I'm *not* going to an Apple store?

yeah i am a bit perplexed that apple wouldnt have done this at the onset of the Touch ID APIs, to lead the way.

it's unfortunate for me because its been implemented after my Watch shipped, which had me checking the app dozens of times for no good reason. dah. tho it was needless anyway, the app pushes a notice when items ship, as it did today. ah well.

This is how it should have been in the first place, when Touch ID was introduced. It is better late than never.

This would have been useful when I was checking my Apple Watch order every day.

They should have done this months ago so that overzealous users would impulse-buy the new MacBook so they'd actually get some sales.
