Having your ID in your phone might not be as convenient as you think.
iPhone owners in Arizona and Georgia will be the first to be able to add their IDs to the Wallet app, with those in Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah to follow. It can then be used in place of your physical ID, although not by holding up your iPhone and showing it.
Whoever is checking your ID needs to use an identity reader, and you tap your iPhone onto the machine, just like you do when paying with Apple Pay. It’s a slick implementation and—as we shall see—secure. But for you, the user, there are several downsides.
