You'll Be Able to Add Your Driver's License to Your iPhone in Select States Starting With iOS 15

Apple today announced that some users will be able to add their driver's license or state IDs to the Wallet app in iOS 15 this fall. This will be available in select states in the United States. If supported, you'll be able to scan your ID and store it directly in the Wallet app.

Apple is working with the TSA to enable airport security checkpoints as the first place customers can user their digital IDs in the Wallet app. Like other cards and items in Wallet, your ID will be secure and encrypted.

The privacy issues of this could be avoided if the officers have a NFC device that reads the ID just like a credit card terminal does with Apple Pay. They don’t get possession of your phone locked or unlocked. They get a valid copy of your ID which they are entitled to.

Yes, but a warrant is different than being pulled over on the side of the road and they ask for "license, registration and insurance card"....so you are going to hand them you locked iPhone to take back to their patrol car?.....I don't think so! Plus Apple is going to mess with iPhone security?...allowing 3rd party apps to be installed directly without the Apple app store? No f'n way
Paying with Apple Pay can be done without unlocking your entire phone, so I assume it’s going to be similar. Only the ID will be unlocked.

I see, thanks. Hmm. Apple should make a quick way to disable FaceID/TouchID.

This is convenient, but I see privacy issues coming up for this...

i.e. we have to present ID to the police, but as of now, they cannot force us to give phone password. So what do you do?
