How To: Can't Double Click to Install? Here's How to Download Apps & Use Apple Pay on the iPhone X

If you used Touch ID on an iPhone before, all you had to do to install apps and games from the App Store was rest your fingertip on the Home button.

On all other iPhone models, you go to "Battery" in the Settings app and toggle on "Battery Percentage" in order to see the exact amount of power left in the status bar.
