Apple Store App Now Supports Touch ID For Authenticating Payments With Apple ID

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.


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. :)

Does that mean I can finally order an iPod Nano through the Apple Store app with Touch ID.

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?

No, I didn't miss any sarcasm. I was pointing the obvious quote in your post regarding "Rumors" about Touch ID in your post. We already know the discrepancies.

Second, I'm not to worried about 2025 and your generalization who is born there after. Not every situation will apply to everyone for password authentication based on what the future holds.

No, the article is just confusing to read. They've supported Apple Pay in the app for a long time now (to which I initially thought this was really old news) but they've now extended that to also allow you to make a payment from the credit card on your Apple ID (as in the one you use with iTunes) rather than just those you've set up specifically for Apple Pay.

Too convenient, I don't like to pay by pressing just one button or this with your fingerprint, I prefer a few steps actually since it makes it harder to make a purchase by "mistake', on the other hand, you have the right to cancel a sale legally within a certain time, the exact time is something like 7 days here I think.

And those rumors are likely inaccurate.



Yes, most likely.


That headline made my head hurt


I read

Apple Store App Now Supports Touch ID For Authenticating Payments With Apple ID.

So my first thought was, how the hell does the Physical Apple store know my fingerprint while it's in the secure enclave.:oops:
Then I read again!:)




(App- didn't notice that word)
