I love when something is simple and even though it took a bit of looking to find it, it’s actually super simple. 

That said, it’s possible that your device doesn’t have the same options as my iPhone 13. If you have an issue with your particular phone, you can email the team and we’ll see if we can find a fix.  

1. Get ready to go live
