Summary

By doing so, the company won't just introduce convenience; it may well be the tipping point that forces more states, the US government, and even Android to make digital driver's licenses the norm.Apple itself isn't launching a universal digital identification scheme; plenty of others have embarked on technically and geopolitically fraught efforts to create a new type of private and secure ID for everyone. Apple's support for driver's licenses in Wallet makes the prospect of digital IDs feel much more concrete. The company also declined to comment about whether it's working to launch digital driver's licenses with any states that don't already offer one independently.“I imagine that Apple may release more specifics soon, but I am disappointed at the lack of transparency around this announcement from the start,” says Alexis Hancock, director of engineering at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. And I have many questions that aren't answered at the moment on how they plan to roll this out with TSA."One major question is how Apple users and law enforcement like TSA agents will actually interact with these digital IDs. If your driver's license is on your phone, you could potentially have to present your fully unlocked device to a law enforcement agent in a transaction like a traffic stop or at airport security.
