iPhone users in the US will soon be able to show their driver’s license on their phone

You’ll soon be able to use the Wallet app on your iPhone in eight US states to show your ID or driver’s license to authorities. The US Customs Administration (TSA) will allow passengers at multiple airports to identify themselves with their smartphones.

First, users in Arizona and Georgia will be given the option. Then Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma and Utah. Apple sees the app as “an important step in our quest to replace physical wallets with secure and convenient mobile variants.”

Identity documents must be entered in a similar manner as already with debit and bank cards in the application. The country of issue must then confirm its authenticity. The tech company says it is consulting with more countries to publish more digital identity documents.
