How to Set Up and Use Apple Pay on the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max

If you haven’t used Apple Pay before on the iPhone, Apple’s mobile wallet makes it easy to buy everything from groceries and clothes to coffee and medicine at millions of retail locations. But even if you are familiar with Apple Pay, you should know that there’s a new way to use it starting with the iPhone X.

With the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and earlier versions of the iPhone, you used the Touch ID sensor to authenticate Apple Pay purchases. But now it’s all done with Face ID. The good news is that it’s really easy to set up and use. —Mark Spoonauer

    Gee, it asked me if I wanted to up load all the info from my iPhone 7 , I clicked yes, and it said put both phones close together and it did it all on it's own, I don't understand why you even wrote this article ..

    I tried several times and this only brings up a screen to let you "slide" to make it go off. What am I doing wrong?

    Tried adding an Amazon and and PayPal CC and it denied me. Before I got this phone, both of the cards were signed up and working fine.

    Is this higher capacity charger the same one used for an iPad?

    After years of using Android, I changed to an iPhone ONLY because iPhone can stream audio to my hearing aids. After 2 weeks with the iPhone there are several clearly inferior characteristics. Most annoying is that you cannot close all open apps at once. The requirement to swipe each open app up or possibly do three at once is garbage. it is extremely difficult to switch between apps as will, something I did frequently on my clearly superior Android phones. Also, Android has apps that allow you to record phone calls but Apple doesn't, claiming that it is illegal in a lot of places. It's also legal in a lot of places. The iPhone function to swipe to get to the open apps is a joke (Android just requires a touch) and the procedure to get to the previous screen when browsing is also laughable compared to Android.
