Face ID has obviously scored higher than its predecessor, i.e. Touch ID in its functionality and ease of usage. Like Touch ID, Face ID is mostly used to unlock the phone, download or purchase apps on iPhone X or login into apps. However, in Touch ID, the action was quite intentional as you have to use physical button to register your fingerprints. In Facial recognition system, the procedure has become far simpler. To avoid any unintentional action (especially while buying anything), Apple has given a buy and get button; there is also a cancel button to dismiss your buying decision. Once you set up Face ID, entire procedure is much easier than Touch ID; so without further delay, here is how to download apps using Face ID on iPhone X.
How to Download Apps Using Face ID on iPhone X
Step #1: Launch the App Store on your iPhone X.
Step #2: To buy an app using Face ID, you need to tap on app’s price (or Get button if the app is free).
Step #3: This will bring up app details from the bottom of your phone’s screen.
You can also see a Cancel button; if you don’t want to make purchase, simply tap on Cancel.
Step #4: To download the app, you need to double-click the power button on the upper right side of your device.
This will quickly initiate the Face ID scan, and the app will be installed.
That’s it! You have done it successfully.
How to Disable Face ID for App Store Purchases on iPhone X

Step #2: Tap on Face ID & Passcode.
Step #3: Enter the Passcode.
Step #4: Simply, toggle off iTunes & App Store option.
It’s Done! Now, you won’t need to authenticate App store purchases using Face ID.
