You’ll soon be able to use your iPhone as ID at the airport

Apple Wallet is also getting support for hotel keys

Apple has announced a forthcoming update to its Wallet app that will allow you to use your iPhone as digital identification in US airports. The company showed how you’ll be able to scan your driver’s license or state ID in participating US states, which will then be encrypted and stored in the iPhone’s secure enclave. The company says it’s working with the TSA to enable the iPhone to be used as identification at airport security checkpoints. 

As well as secure ID, Apple says it’s working to allow hotels to distribute room card keys via Apple Wallet, allowing you to collect a room key before you arrive at a hotel. Home keys and work keys were also announced as coming to the Wallet app.

Apple Wallet launched with support for card purchases before expanding to cover other use cases like transit passes. Apple reiterated that it’s also adding features for unlocking cars using recent iPhones’ ultra-wideband support with BMW and other car manufacturers.
