Chase Mobile  , the iOS app which allows Chase customers to check their account balances, send money, and perform a number of further actions, has received an update adding support for Appleâs Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
As such, users of the free app can now log in to Chase Mobile using Touch ID, rather than having to enter their password into the applicationâs main interface. Of course, this is much easier; here in England, Iâve been using a similar feature on bank NatWestâs iPhone app, and it makes the process of performing quick balance checks while on the go far, far easier than it previously was.
Chase explains, in its appâs release notes, that certain features will still require a password to be entered, and as 9to5mac adds  , Touch ID support isnât available when the universal app is running on the iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3; instead, itâs limited to the iPhone only. This most recent update, however, has also brought full optomization for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and this should please a lot of users.
Not long ago, Appleâs own Apple Store  iOS app received an update adding support for Touch ID sign-ins , and before this, we heard that a Touch ID-equipped iPhone 5c (or even âiPhone 6câ) could be scheduled to launch later this year . For now, Touch ID is available on the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as for the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. Appleâs fingerprint scanner has yet to make the leap to its Mac platform, and the recently launched Apple Watch currently uses a four-digit passcode for security verification.
