Using Apple Pay with Face ID on iPhone X is as easier as it can ever get. Frankly speaking, I had plenty of doubt about the security and accuracy of facial recognition before the arrival of Apple's most advanced smartphone. But once I have gone through what Face ID has to offer, I have no doubt its efficacy.
For those unfamiliar, Face ID is enabled by the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X. It projects and analyses over 30,000 invisible dots to create an immaculate depth map of your face. Apple says, “The odds that someone else' fingerprint will unlock Touch ID are 1 in 50,000, whereas Face ID's chances of another face matching are merely 1 in 1,000,000.” Anyway, you want to find out how to pay using Apple Pay with Face ID on iPhone? Let me show you how it works:
How to Use Apple Pay on iPhone X
- Make sure you have already set up Apple Pay on your device. Open Settings app → Wallet & Apple Pay → Tap Add Credit/ Debit Card → follow the instruction to set it up.
- Also, set up Face ID on your iPhone X. (check out the complete guide here.)
Step #1. First off, simply unlock your iPhone. Next, you need to double-click the side button to access the Apple Pay app.
Step #2. Now, look actively at your iPhone to verify your identity with Face ID. Make sure to open your eyes to let the authentication process be completed successfully. (Also keep in mind that there should be no barrier like sunglasses.)
The tiny blue symbol near the center of your device' screen will change from “Face ID” to “Hold Near Reader; confirming that you have been successfully identified. Next up, follow the usual process of making the payment.
