Apple has announced that users can add their driver’s license and state ID to Apple Wallet if they’re in Arizona. It’s the first state to support these documents and they can be used in conjunction with an iPhone or Apple Watch at TSA security checkpoints at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to quickly pass through security.
Commenting on this development, Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet, said:
“We’re thrilled to bring the first driver’s license and state ID in Wallet to Arizona today, and provide Arizonans with an easy, secure, and private way to present their ID when traveling, through just a tap of their iPhone or Apple Watch. We look forward to working with many more states and the TSA to bring IDs in Wallet to users across the US.”
According to the company, it’s planning to bring support for these documents to other states soon including Colorado, Hawaii, Mississippi, Ohio, the territory of Puerto Rico, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah.
To add your driver’s license and state ID to Apple Wallet, begin by pressing the + button at the top of the screen in Wallet and selecting “Driver’s License or State ID”, this will allow you to add your documents and pass through some verification. To add these documents, you must be using an iPhone 8 or later with iOS 15.4. It also works on Apple Watch Series 4 or later running watchOS 8.4 or above.
