Starbucks iOS App Now Supports Apple Pay

I don’t visit Starbucks anywhere near as much as I used to, but news of Apple Pay support in the latest update1 brought a smile to my face nonetheless. Using Apple Pay to reload the card is easy as pie and certainly beats typing in my account password. Now, we just need Dunkin Donuts to follow suit.

There’s some trepidation over the fact that the Apple Pay integration only allows you to reload a stored card balance. I’d welcome a pay-at-the-register option, but removing the need for password input to reload is a huge improvement.

  1. How is it still not optimized for iPhone 6/6 Plus?
