CIBC Mobile Banking to Get Touch ID, iPhone 6 Support Soon

CIBC Mobile Banking app users, a new version is coming soon which will bring support for Touch ID for logins, a highly requested feature by customers. The financial institution has teased new features of their app on the company’s website and within the existing app itself.

    That is awesome if somewhat way overdue, but CIBC seems to be one of the best in the way of adopting app features, with a pretty good Apple Watch too.
    Next Apple Pay?!

    About damn time for TouchID support. Can’t wait…

    Touch ID has been out for over two full years. Larger displays for over a year. Banks are so slow to update their apps.

    At least CIBC’s is a native app. BMO’s app is rough and RBC’s actually feels like a joke. Like going back in time to Web 1.0.

    Finally…can they hire maybe more than one programmer? Better late than never though.

    Amex has Touch ID on their app. Makes it a breeze to use.

    TD still doesn’t have TouchID support, I still have to put in a password like a pleb.

  • Geoff

    Scotia already has TouchID

  • Cornfed710

    At least BMO has had Touch ID for awhile now, but I agree it needs lots of improvement.

    Why does it feel like Td just doesn’t give a crap? 🙁

    I hope CIBC also updates the PC Finanical app as well. It’s been buggy for awhile too.

  • Can0nfan

    Well been 5 weeks and still no update. What is CIBC’s definition of “soon”??

  • LionsRoar

    Still waiting for mobile payments directly from iPhone like Apple pay and still waiting for flippin’ apple to allow us to add our cibc debit cards in apple wallet…. What’s the freaking holdup? Apple doesn’t like Canada very much for some reason grrrrrrrrr
