How to Use Apple Pay on iPhone X with Face ID

So what there is no Touch ID iPhone X? You can use Apple Pay your iPhone X with Face ID more securely. Check out how it’s done the right way.

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:
