Several states in the US advocated for the digital driver’s licences and other state IDs which would be accessed on an iPhone, flipmemes gathered.
According to Apple, the feature would let iPhone users store IDs in the Wallet app.
Although several volunteers feared that the privacy of some users might be at stake following the announcement, apple in response disclosed that all users info would be encrypted.
Apple also said users do not need to unlock or hand over their phones for the system to work for airport security.
But it remains unclear if or how it might eventually work for other uses of ID, such as drivers stopped by police.
The system would be used at airport security checkpoints, to access Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Apple says.
Apple also Disclosed that other security features of its new app includes “offering superior security and privacy over a physical wallet”.
Neither Apple nor state authorities would know when or where ID was presented, it said, as all personal information was encrypted.
Also the use of automated or ‘robot’ ID checks would come in handy here as several operations would be carried out not by humans but by machines, causing such demands to proliferate even more,” Apple group added.
