At WWDC 2021, an incredible number of new functions of the individual Apple services were presented. One of the most exciting things in my opinion was the new possibilities for the Apple Wallet.
ID cards, room keys & car keys come on the iPhone
In the future, it will be possible not only to store credit cards or flight tickets in the Apple Wallet, but also to have hotel room keys integrated before arrival at the destination. With BMW, the car key is now also available on the smartphone.
But the “one more thing” with the ID, the American version of the identity card, was very special. In the future, these can also be stored in the Apple Wallet and then used on domestic flights, for example. So it is officially recognized in the USA. A very, very cool thing!
Unfortunately, nothing was said about Germany in this context. We’ll wait and see if that will also be possible with us. What do you think?
You can see more impressions of the new features in the Apple Wallet right here in the keynote. Incidentally, the timestamp for the right place is already set 😉
