Reduce travel stress: Apple users in the United States can use a digital driver’s license and ID
Apple has announced that in some US states iPhone holders will be able to travel anonymously by plane or car. In the future, just show your cell phone.
Technology company Apple announced on Wednesday that iPhone and Apple Watch users in eight U.S. states will soon be able to use digital versions of their devices and be able to use driving licenses and government ID cards – wrote on his website.
Travel without further documentation
It starts with Arizona and Georgia, followed by Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma and Utah, Apple said in a statement. “The Transport Safety Administration (TSA) will operate selected security checkpoints at participating airports because customers can use their driver’s license or state ID card in digital form for the first time,” Apple said.
The technology company explains that adding an ID works just like adding a credit card. However, users will be asked to make continuous face and head movements during the set-up process to prevent abuse. Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president, hopes to add more states to the list soon.
Welcome to Apple Digital ID Connecticut
“We are pleased that DSA and several other states are already in the process of implementing a nationwide tour that only requires IS and Apple Watch, and are in talks with many more states to achieve the goal. We can provide this nationwide in the future,” he said briefly.
In a statement, Connecticut Gov. Net Lamond said the government sees Apple’s introduction of digital IDs as another step in modernizing its state’s administration: to provide government IDs digitally, and we look forward to taking the next steps to ensure that this new feature benefits our residents.
