Apple delays iOS digital driver’s license feature until 2022
When Apple announced iOS 15 earlier this year, one of the features it revealed was the ability for users to add their driver’s license to Apple Wallet. Of course, whether or not it will be recognized as a legitimate form of identity (in digital form) will depend on case to case, but it will be an option in countries that have recognized it.
Unfortunately, if this is a feature you’ve been eyeing, you may be disappointed to learn that it won’t happen until 2022. The feature was originally supposed to launch by the end of the year, but an update to Apple’s website now says it’s expected to arrive in early 2020. 2022 instead.
It’s unclear why the feature was delayed from its initial launch by the end of 2021, but there may still be some legal or regulatory hurdles that Apple needs to clear first. The goal was initially to launch the feature for residents of Arizona and Georgia, and residents of Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma and Utah will get the feature soon after.
The company is also in talks with other countries to make it legally available so that the entire country can eventually benefit from it. Since the feature was not spotted in the latest beta version of iOS 15.2, don’t hold your breath when you see it anytime soon.
