CIBC’s banking app just got a major update for the iPhone.

Now at version 7.0, the most notable change is the app’s new user interface. It’s definitely a noticeable and welcome change; previous versions of the app overemphasized CIBC’s branding, often to the determinant of the overall user experience. On the app’s iTunes store page, CIBC says it tailored the new design for the iPhone 6 and above, so CIBC customers with newer iPhones have particular reason to look forward to this update.

On the feature front, the most useful addition here is Touch ID support. Anyone that has used one of the other banking apps that supports Touch ID will know how much this small feature improves the usability of the app in question.

In addition, overall navigation has been improved so that user can more easily access details on any outstanding mortgages, mutual funds and loans. Setting up recurring bill payments and transfers, as well as managing INTERAC transfers is likewise easier.

Download the updated CIBC banking app from the iTunes App Store.

    I think this is one of the few times where the iPhone and Android versions have similar designs but still follow their respective UX guidelines.

      I feel like the two designs are starting to merge. The company I work for ported their iPhone app to android, and the design is fairly identical, with the exception in a few smaller places and some icons. I’d say about 80% is the same.

    President’s Choice Financial updated their Android app to this look yesterday as well. Cannot speak to the iOS version due to not owning one.
