Apple’s iOS 15 Enables Digital IDs | Avast

When Apple releases iOS 15 this fall, iPhone users will find something new – a designated space in Apple Wallet where they can store their state ID or driver’s license along with their credit cards. Some U.S. states have already begun to develop the infrastructure for digital IDs, but even states that allow digital driver’s licenses require users to keep their physical licenses on them as well. “The TSA is working to enable airport security checkpoints as the first place you can use your digital ID,” said Jennifer Baily, vice president of Wallet and Apple Pay. Apple did not release specifics, however, as to whether the digital ID protocol will adhere to any existing standards, such as the one drafted by the International Organization for Standardization.
