Eric from New Jersey

Eric is thinking of updating to the iPhone XR, but he wants to know if using Face ID is going to be a hassle moving over to it from Touch ID. Rich says that once he sets it up on the phone the first time, it's stored locally and his apps will access the login that way. The first time he logs into his other apps, it'll ask him if he wants to use Face ID to log in. After he gives the permission, it will use Face ID every time after that.
