Adding your driver’s license to your iPhone and Apple Wallet is a convenient way to keep your license with you at all times without having to physically carry it around. With this feature, you can easily show your license to authorities or use it as a form of identification in various situations. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to add your driver’s license to your iPhone and Apple Wallet:
Make sure your iPhone is updated to the latest version of iOS. You’ll also need to have the latest version of the Wallet app.
On your iPhone, open the Wallet app. If you’re asked to add a card, tap Continue, then tap the plus button in the upper-right corner. If you’re not asked to add a card, tap the plus button in the upper-right corner, then tap Continue.
Position your driver’s license in the frame on the screen, so that your license appears inside the frame. Your iPhone will automatically capture the information from your license.
Make sure that your license is correctly oriented and that all of the information is readable. If the information is not captured correctly, you can adjust it by manually entering the information.
Tap Next, and then review the information to make sure it’s correct. If the information is correct, tap Done.
To use your driver’s license as your default ID, tap “Use as Default ID”.
And that’s it! Your driver’s license should now be saved in your iPhone’s Wallet app, and you can access it at any time by opening the Wallet app.
It is important to keep in mind that this feature is currently available only in the US and Canada. Additionally, not all government-issued IDs are supported.
It’s also worth mentioning that you can use your driver’s license through your iPhone to check-in at the airport, show your ID at the bar, buy age-restricted products, or even as identification when renting a car.
In addition, it’s important to note that the information stored in Wallet is encrypted and protected with the device’s passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID. And you can remotely wipe all the information stored in Wallet if your device is lost.
In conclusion, adding your driver’s license to your iPhone and Apple Wallet is a convenient and secure way to keep your license with you at all times, while also making it easier to use as a form of identification in various situations. Now that you know how to do it, you can easily add your own driver’s license to your iPhone and Apple Wallet in just a few simple steps.
