Apple Delays the Launch of Drivers License

Apple delays the launch of drivers licenses. The ability to add ID cards to its Wallet app for iPhones will launch in early 2022. Apple revealed the feature would launch later this year. The company revealed the first eight states that would support the Wallet ID feature.

The company said that they would first debut in Arizona and Georgia, and then it would follow by Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah. Users can add their driver’s license or identification card to the Wallet app, as you would anything else, like a Starbucks card or a card for Apple Pay. It would live in your Wallet.

The wallet has a QR code, and you could go through security checkpoints and lanes more quickly in that form. It’s one of several features that Apple has planned for the Wallet app on iPhones. Among them, you can hold digital house keys. You can have the keys to your car there. Users also have workplace badges to enter buildings.

Apple plans to start with some components that tend to require replacement such as displays, batteries and camera modules. The company says it will have more than 200 parts and tools available at launch and plans for more to be added later next year. The repair program will initially be available only for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 users, but will later expand to Mac computers that use new in-house M1 chip.
