iPhone X has removed the Home button and replaced the Touch ID with Face ID. It may take some time for users to get used to the edge-to-edge display and use all the features without the Home button. However, you can perform all the basic tasks on iPhone X easily and one of them is using Apple Pay with Face ID.
If you are having doubts and would like to know the exact method to use Apple Pay on iPhone X with Face ID, then we’ve got you covered. If you’re not familiar with the Face ID because you missed out on the iPhone launch event, then it is the feature enabled by the TrueDepth camera on iPhone X. It scans over 30,000 dots on your face to create an immaculate depth map and matches it with the one in the database. So, with that out of the way, let’s see how you can use Apple Pay on your iPhone X with the Face ID.
Before we see the steps, you should make sure that Apple Pay is already setup on your device along with Face ID. To setup Apple Pay, go to Settings app >> Wallet & Apple Pay >> Tap Add Debit/Credit Card and then follow the instructions to complete the setup. If the Face ID is not enabled on your smartphone, then check out our complete guide on how to do that.
