Apple Store App for iOS Updated Touch ID Support, Two-Step Confirmation

Apple today updated its Apple Store app for iOS to version 3.3, including extra security and benefit features to the app. There’s now a “Touch ID” alternative in the Account area of the app that permits users to make it possible for Touch ID for seeing orders, accessing EasyPay invoices, and booking at an Apple Store.

Formerly, these sections of the app required an Apple ID password to be input whenever they were accessed, now the app will request for Touch ID verification in lieu of a password when Touch ID is toggled on.

Before the update, Touch ID usage was restricted to Apple Spend for making purchases, but with the broadened Touch ID capabilities, accessing different sections of the app to obtain order info is much quicker.
