Essentially, you probably don't as APS film is no longer made and is getting difficult to get processed if you do get some old stock.
But like on all APS cameras, there's a lock on one end of the camera and usually you turn it to open a small door on the bottom of the camera. The APS film cassette gets pushed into the compartment and when you close the door and the camera *should* wind the film ready for shooting and lock the door so that you cannot open it until the film is rewound. The cameras are entirely battery dependent and many used CR2 lithium batteries which are disproportionately expensive and hard to find except from online suppliers.
Unfortunately APS was a badly engineered system from the start, so the cameras didn't tend to last long before suffering major faults. You may wish to bear that fact in mind as those faults won't show until you load a film and any film you do find will likely cost more than you can buy another APS camera for. They're widely available for free or for about a £ or two from almost any charity shop (not from the one I work in though as I always put them straight into the recycling bin as they're a liability).
