Users of the Starbucks app now have an additional option when it comes to reloading their digital Starbucks card: Apple Pay. Starbucks previously support credit and debit cards as well as PayPal accounts. But both depended on storing your information in the app. Apple Pay, obviously, doesn't do that, instead generating a unique one-time-use card number for each transaction.
Here's what all is new in the latest update:
- You can now use Apple Pay to quickly reload your Starbucks Card. Touch ID makes it faster than ever.
- By popular demand, the menu is enhanced. When you browse our menu you'll now find additional calorie information on menu items.
There's just one caveat to the Apple Pay integration: it only works with manual reloads. Since Apple Pay is tightly integrated with Touch ID and requires your authenticated fingerprint to permit payment, Starbucks's automatic reload of cards won't work. But for those that have opted to go the manual route, you've now got one more option topping off your card before you top off your caffeine.
