Using Apple Pay on the iPhone X means no more using your thumb to ID yourself. Instead, you’ll be using Apple’s Face ID. No worries — it’s still dead simple to set up and get your Chipotle order without opening your wallet.

How to Use Apple Pay on the iPhone X

1. Set up Face ID. You’ve likely already done this while setting up your phone, but just in case: Go to Settings, then Face ID & Passcode, and enter your passcode. Swing your face around in a circle and look somewhat silly, and your face is registered.

2. Switch on Apple Pay: Go to Settings, then Face ID & Passcode, and flip the switch on Apple Pay to on.

3. Add a payment method: Go to Settings, then Wallets and & Apple Pay. You can use the phone on your camera if you’re adding a credit or debit card, otherwise enter your payment info.

4. Actually buy something: Once you’re in a store that accepts Apple Pay, double-tap the power button (the button on the left side) twice. Look down at your phone and you’ll see the Face ID icon swirl for moment. Done. Congratulations on spending money!
