Apple kicked off their WWDC (their developer’s conference) today and there are a bunch of new things coming to software updates this year! One of the things that will be good news for any and all iPhone users is the ability to keep your ID right in your iPhone – and it will be good enough to get through the TSA!
iPhone Wallet Can Be Your ID for TSA and More
I know – people will feel nervous about having their ID on their phone but Apple has said that this new feature for keeping your ID will be the same safety technology that is used to keep your credit cards safe. That’s because your ID will be kept in your Apple Wallet, just one more step towards eliminating the actual wallet and letting you keep all your wallet contents (except cash!) right on your iPhone.
This is all part of iOS 15 which will launch with a public beta in the next month and the actual official rollout in mid-September. It will be around that same time that the TSA will be setup to start letting you use your ID as a way to get through without having to use your actual ID. This will be for driver’s licenses and other ID cards.
This is great news since it means one less thing to have out of your pocket in a busy airport. Now, you can have everything you need right on your iPhone – your e-ticket and your ID. Just use that to supply the necessary information. And, your iPhone will notify you about what information is needed and being accessed by the TSA.
Apple will also be adding more parts to the wallet, including the ability to have your hotel key for 1,000 Hyatt properties later this year.
