When Is a Driver’s License Addable to Apple Wallet?

Have you been wondering when your driver’s license will be added to Apple Wallet? Not by yourself! The first announcement of driver’s license and state ID support for Apple Wallet was made at the 2021 WWDC and described in an Apple press release.

More states are expected to soon offer this option, including Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Utah, as well as the US territory of Puerto Rico.

The first state to accomplish this is Arizona. Plans for Apple Wallet include a national rollout of the digital driver’s license feature.

According to Apple, “Participating states and the TSA will share more information later about when support for mobile driver’s licenses and state IDs in Wallet will be available in each state, and which TSA airport security checkpoints and select lanes it will be available at first.

” The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is on board to accept mobile driver’s licenses and state IDs in Apple Wallet at participating airports.
