Apple Shares Tutorial Video on Using Apple Pay With iPhone X

Apple today shared a new tutorial video on its YouTube channel, this time demonstrating how to use Apple Pay in retail stores with the iPhone X.

Apple Pay on iPhone X is similar to Apple Pay on other devices, but with no fingerprint sensor, you need to unlock your iPhone with Face ID and double tap on the side button to bring up the Wallet app.


Apple's video uses step-by-step instructions to walk users through how to use Apple Pay, similar to other tutorial videos the company has released in the past.

- Step 1: Locate a point-of-sale system that accepts Apple Pay
- Step 2: Double click side button and glance at screen
- Step 3: Hold top of iPhone near reader screen

Apple has been using short tutorial videos for several months now to demonstrate iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, iOS 11, and iPad Pro features. Previous videos have highlighted peer-to-peer Apple Pay payments, Portrait Lightning, iPad-specific iOS 11 tools, and more.

If they need to provide a tutorial weeks after the FCS, then clearly it's not as easy as Touch ID.

I like using Apple Pay on my Watch instead. When people aren’t paying attention, they think I’m getting items for free... stealthy.

I wouldn’t say it’s as fluid as using Touch ID, but I use it on my watch anyway so it’s fine with me.

Yeah, pressing a button and looking at the screen sounds like a pain in the butt :rolleyes:

I never use the iPhone anymore for Apple Pay since I got the original Apple Watch. It is just so convenient.

Yes to all of this. TouchID was not only mindless, it was sightless. Pull phone out of pocket with thumb on Home button and jab it at the reader - done. No fiddly double-click, no need to position the phone where you're sure the phone has a good shot at your face. FaceID has a lot of truly great features, but it was NOT an improvement for ApplePay.
Double clicking a physical side button is anything but “fiddly” and the authentication is like any FaceID unlock which never requires a “good view” of your face like it’s some kind of gymnastics to get it to work. You simply look at your phone casually and it’s done in less than a second.

You can make flipping a light switch on sound complicated if you’re biased.

I’ve used a FaceID for ApplePay at least 100 times and never felt irritated.

You can also authenticate before tapping so it’s quite easy to “be ready” when it’s time to pay.

You’re making it sound more complicated than it is because you like TouchID. I hate having a home button on my iPad now that there isn’t one on the X and I don’t want TouchID anywhere else. FaceID is better. Fewer failures.
