Apple announces digital driver's license feature in these 8 states
Apple becomes most profitable company in the world
FOX Business’ Susan Li and Constellation Research CEO Ray Wang discuss Apple’s business model.
Eight states will soon allow residents to add a digital driver’s license or ID card to their Apple Wallet or Apple Watch, the tech giant announced on Wednesday.
The feature allows users to scan their physical license or ID using their iPhone or Apple Watch. For additional security, users will upload a photo of themselves and "complete a series of facial and head movements," Apple said in a press release.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will allow the use of approved digital licenses at airport security checkpoints in the participating states. Arizona and Georgia will be the first states with access to the new feature, according the company. Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma and Utah also will participate in the rollout in the near future.
