iOS 15 Automatically Archives Expired Boarding Passes and Tickets in Wallet App

Apple announced iOS 15 on Monday, and as usual, there is a long list of smaller features that went unmentioned during the WWDC keynote.

wallet app expired passes ios 15
One of these small but helpful features is archived passes in the Wallet app. Starting with iOS 15, expired boarding passes and event tickets in the Wallet app are automatically moved to an expired list, helping to reduce clutter.

In the Settings app under Wallet & Apple Pay, there's a toggle switch for hiding expired passes that is enabled by default. Users who prefer to have expired passes shown alongside current passes can disable the setting.

Apple is making the Wallet app a lot more useful in iOS 15. In addition to digital boarding passes, tickets, and car keys, users can now add digital house keys, which can be tapped to unlock a compatible HomeKit door lock. Hotel room key cards can also be added to the Wallet app from a participating hotel provider's app. Hyatt Hotels will be rolling out the feature to over 1,000 of its properties worldwide in the fall.

Another interesting new feature is the ability to add a driver's license and/or ID from participating U.S. states to the Wallet app and present them securely at TSA checkpoints at airports. Apple says this feature will be available in late 2021, suggesting that it will be enabled at some point after the initial public release of iOS 15.

Shame, I find it somewhat mesmerising scrolling through my previous boarding passes. And satisfying organising them
by airline too. Although that’s probably just me…

the collection of old trips/tickets is pretty cool to flip through sometimes - going down memory lane.

And now, if you could group those per provider and keep the loyalty/status cards in special area while you are at it, please

It's not just you. I have pretty much every boarding pass since about 2016. I just leave them in chronological order. It's kind of a fun little memento.
