How to set up and use Face ID on iPhone X

This year, Apple has removed its Touch ID authentication on the iPhone X in favor of a new technology, known as Face ID. Basically, Face ID is a face recognition system that captures several images of your facial features to unlock the device and authorize Apple Pay payments.

Face ID on the iPhone X is not a security system that can be hacked with a picture, like what we have already seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Apple’s Face ID can detect physical changes, like hairstyles, makeups, sunglasses, or beards.

The iPhone X will be available on November 3, two months later than its two brothers, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, so you need to wait. If you are planning to grab the phone on launch day, you will need to make sure you get the most out of Face ID.

In this guide, we will go through the steps to set up and use Face ID on iPhone X. Before we begin, note that Face ID is available on the iPhone X only.
