According to Apple’s statement at WWDC, the Wallet app will contain a function to store ID cards for your convenience. Although this functionality has yet to emerge in an iOS 15 version, 9to5Mac uncovered a verification process for adding an ID card in the newest developer beta.
This code was discovered in the most recent iOS 15 developer beta, and it is expected to be used in the upcoming ID card adding feature. To add your ID card to the Wallet app on your iPhone, you’ll need to go through verification, which is designed to prevent users from stealing identification documents. The wonderful thing is that you can do the verification by shooting a selfie of yourself.
Selfie validation isn’t new; some banking apps utilize it to verify users on new devices; nevertheless, Apple has created its own approach based on iPhone technologies.
However, the procedure isn’t the same as simply taking a selfie. It’s similar to how Face ID works, where you have to swivel your head in various positions for the iPhone to recognize your face. Here, animations will show you how to take pictures of your face in various poses, such as gazing sideways, raising your eyebrows, opening your lips, and smiling.
The findings will then be examined on the device according to portions of the code, and the setup will be completed. You’ll be able to use your ID card solely with Face ID to validate your identity after it’s been integrated into the Wallet app.
Apple has said that the ability to link your ID card to Apple Wallet will be available to some US residents later this year.
