At Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference yesterday, the tech giant made an announcement that will have a large potential impact on financial services companies. It will enable third party developers to use its Touch ID fingerprint recognition scanner.
At the conference, Apple SVP Craig Federighi showed the iPhone login screen of Finovate alum, Mint.com, to illustrate a potential use case of Touch ID’s open API.
CardFlight, a mobile POS solutions company, will be another one of the first to take advantage of Touch ID once Apple releases iOS 8 this fall. New York-based CardFlight plans to incorporate the biometric authentication technology into its SwipeSimple product.
Check out the demo video of CardFlight’s debut at FinovateSpring 2013 here.
