Apple's Wallet app is launching enhanced fraud prevention for some cards, a new feature that uses your device's location to help identify and prevent fraud.
Earlier today, Apple seeded the first beta of iOS 15.5 to developers. This is probably one of the last major updates for iOS 15 as a whole, with iOS 16 looming on the horizon. And while this update doesn't appear to add any major new features to the mix, it does look like Apple is going to be making some changes with the new software.
Arizonians can now officially add driver's licenses and state IDs to Apple's Wallet app on their iPhone to securely present their digital counterparts at select touchless TSA security checkpoints in Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
It’s not very often that we bear witness of jailbreak add-ons made especially for Apple Pay, but that’s exactly what you can expect from an upcoming released dubbed Sydney by iOS developer bank5ia.
Widespread adoption of digital keys is still a slow process. But at least it's happening. Apple is helping in its own way, making it possible to store digital keys in the built-in, first-party Wallet app. This should make it easier to get many things done, including accessing your hotel room. And now a new video shows just how easy it can be.
The iPhone’s native Wallet app lets users store and quickly summon important passes and payment methods, but Apple limits what you can store in the Wallet app, which proves frustrating in many cases.
During the annual Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year, Apple unveiled some pretty big changes for the Wallet app. Namely, expanded support for keys, and, finally, the ability to store a digital version of your mobile identification and/or drivers license. The feature has kind of rolled out since then, but we're still waiting on the mobile ID support.
Digital keys are supposed to make things easier, and for many people that is indeed the case. But widespread support isn't quite there yet. That's changing today, though, as one of the largest hotel chains out there is adopting the useful function.
Earlier this year, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, the company unveiled a brand new feature that will allow iOS 15 users to add their driver's license (and/or state I.D.) to the Wallet app. The feature was expected to launch with the public release of iOS 15. However, that did not pan out, and Apple had to readjust its release window for the feature.
Some US states are adding support for digital IDs and driver's licenses in the iPhone's Wallet app, with strict oversight and control of the whole process by Apple itself.
It has been in the works for weeks now, but the wait is finally over. Along with the public release of macOS Monterey 12, Apple has also released the next big updates for iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. Now, users with eligible devices at their disposal can download and install iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1 for free.
When Apple unveiled iOS 15, it also revealed that the Wallet app will support storing digital driver's licenses and identification cards. Unfortunately, though, the feature isn't supported by all 50 states in the United States, at least not yet. Worse, the feature isn't even live quite yet, as Apple delayed the feature for sometime later this fall.
