Every June, Apple unveils its latest software improvements for its devices.
Monday, June 7 marked the beginning of the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference, and Apple’s virtual keynote included details of what’s coming to iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple Watches this fall.
While there’s a slew of features included in the new iOS 15 that’ll soon power your iPhone, six of them are significant enough to get travelers particularly excited. Let’s take a look.
A digital ID for TSA checkpoints
Gone are the days of fumbling through your bag to find your ID while waiting in the airport security line.
Beginning in late 2021, you’ll be able to scan your state ID card or driver’s license using the built-in iPhone camera, and it’ll instantly be verified and stored securely in your iPhone’s wallet.
The feature will debut with a handful of yet undisclosed states, but the technology paves the way for a more seamless airport security screening experience.
During the keynote event, Apple teased that the TSA is working to accept a digitized version of your ID.
