December 23. Apple announced its digital ID feature for iOS at WWDC this year. But as many people predicted, it’s not anywhere to be seen just yet. At the time, Apple said it was working with several states to enable users to safely add their ID to the Wallet app. Apple also said the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was planning to allow users at select airports to use a digital ID on their iPhone when traveling.
Now comes word that the TSA will officially start a pilot program to support digital IDs at security checkpoints. The pilot program will begin sometime in 2022. The announcement comes via the Secure Technology Alliance. If all goes well, traveling will soon become much more convenient for iPhone users.
