Businesses will be able to accept IDs in Apple Wallet with iOS 17
Apple has revealed that iOS 17 will include a new feature that will allow businesses to accept IDs in Apple Wallet with no additional hardware needed.
This will improve the way businesses check a customer’s age in person for things like alcohol purchases, or to verify a customer’s identity at checkout for car rentals, and more.
To securely present their ID in Wallet to an enabled business, users will hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near the business’s iPhone. Users will be shown what information is being requested and whether the receiving party will be storing the information.
Users will then be asked to authenticate and consent by using Face ID or Touch ID.
