If we already knew that Apple liked updates, what we couldn’t imagine is that Cupertino’s developers would update their Apple Store application today.
The Apple Store application allows you to pay using the Touch ID
Apple today updated its official shopping application (Apple Store) with the ability to support Touch ID technology to securely and conveniently pay for any order with a credit card linked to an Apple ID, as well as making changes to account settings.
Very important news for an application that does not usually receive such important updates as these. Although the Apple Store application already allowed the possibility of paying for purchases directly with the credit or debit card associated with our Apple ID , we still needed to type in our password for purchase authentication. Now, users don’t have to type anything, they just use the technology inside the Touch ID sensor to give authorization of the purchase.
The Apple Store app is updated with Touch ID support for payments (Macrumors)
According to the details of this update, to pay with a credit card associated with our Apple ID , just click on the button with the option of “Buy with other payment options” .
More than just an update from Apple
In addition, Apple has noted that the new Apple Store update makes it easier for users to see if any Apple products are available at a particular Apple store near our location.
The last major update of the Apple Store had already introduced the possibility to pay with our typical payment method in the Apple ID. Let’s remember that for Apple, the company’s online store is one of the points where the highest turnover is made throughout the year .
Apple Store’s distinctive logo
In recent times, Apple had focused on leveraging its Official Support app to provide greater service to customers. However, it seems that Apple has not forgotten its official store app and presents us with really important news. Some new features that many users can already enjoy as soon as they update their app through the App Store.
Remember that the new Apple Store application is now available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch . We will update this article as we discover new features presented by Apple in the new Apple Store app. For the moment I only recommend you to follow all the news from Apple through our website.
