    1) Any body know if the new iPhone X's Face ID works with all current Touch ID Apps? or we need to wait for the Apps to update?

    1) Face ID works with ALL Touch ID apps. Craig said in a talk show that the two APIs are swappable/compatible.

    2) Yes, wherever that accepts Apple Pay with Touch ID will work with Face ID. This was confirmed in the keynote.

    Read this thread if your debating the 8 vs X, it should help.

    Let us know what your leaning towards after reading!

    There is no Touch ID API!!!!

    There is only 'local authentication' & 'biometric authentication' api.
