“Confirm Subscription” – Apple adds a new popup in store
It’s pretty obvious that you accidentally click on purchasing an application or a subscription on the App Store. You lose the money and it also helps you find out the true potential of some really good applications. No matter how that helps or kicks, it’s a glitch which is now officially addressed by Apple.
Apple has added a new pop up box that asks users to confirm the subscription even after approving it with Touch ID or Face ID. Though Face ID uses the home button double tap to activate it, while the Touch ID just approves the purchases without even a confirmation. The new popup box might keep iPhone users away from accidental subscriptions.
Even though Apple was a bit late, the solution is here as spotted by an Apple Developer David Barnard which is confirmed by 9to5Mac.
Whoa! Apple added an additional confirmation step for subscriptions. This new alert comes after you confirm with Touch ID/Face ID. I hope they address this in a more elegant way in iOS 13, but I’m thrilled Apple took a definitive step to curb scam subscriptions. 👏🏻 @pschiller pic.twitter.com/oktaEVdx0o
