Arizona is breaking new ground as the first state to support Apple's digital state ID and driver's license. Residents can submit their digital ID for approval, which adds the document to the Wallet app on iPhone. Once added, the iPhone or Apple Watch can be used to present the digital ID in place of a traditional card at TSA checkpoints in Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. Apple plans to launch the technology in additional US locales soon.
Vaccination cards are just paper and they aren't always the correct size to fit in a wallet. Some have taken photos or scans of their card to store in the iPhone Photos app. This is the simplest way to keep a copy of your vaccination card with you at all times. For more convenience and better verification, there is a way to add proof of vaccination to your Wallet app.
You can have many credit and debit cards saved in your Wallet app to use with Apple Pay, but only one pops up as the default when you double tap your side button to make a payment. Of course you can then choose a different card, but why have that extra step? If you have one card you like to use in almost every case, you should have it as the default option. Here's how to switch your default payment card for Apple Pay on iPhone:
With three quick presses of your Home button, Apple's Wallet app gives you instant access to your credit and debit cards that are linked to Apple Pay. But, like the one in your back pocket, it can hold much more than credit cards. Wallet can also become an organizer of coupons, concert and sporting event tickets, gift cards, airplane tickets, movie passes and more. This keeps everything at your fingertips so you don't need to go searching through emails or fumbling through a purse while a line of impatient movie-goers forms behind you.
Apple Pay is a convenient and very secure payment method that can be used both at brick-and-mortar stores and for online purchases. To use it, you first have to add a credit/debit card to your Wallet app. If you use the service often, chances are you have added several credit cards and at some point will want to remove some of them, either because they have expired, become compromised, or you simply don't want to use a particular card anymore.
