So the iPhone X has been announced to a largely positive reception, however, with the lack of a home button on the new device, everyone is asking the same question: how will you be able to use Apply Pay without Touch ID?!
Well, you'll still be able to use Apple Pay to pay for things, however, the process will be slightly different on the iPhone X.
Instead of simply double-tapping the home button and holding it near the sensor, you'll now double-tap the side of the iPhone X, look at the phone so Face ID can recognize you, then hold the device near the sensor.
So, yes, your phone will have to recognize your face before you pay for anything. This is the future.
