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.

apple store app
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.

Yet the rumours are that Touch ID is on the way out...
And those rumors are likely inaccurate.

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. :)

You missed the sarcasm

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

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