In 2021, Apple introduced a feature that allows residents of participating US states to add their driver’s license or ID to the Wallet app on the iPhone and Apple Watch, providing a convenient contactless way to show proof of identity or age.
Unfortunately, states have been slow to adopt the feature since it was first announced in September 2021, and Wallet app IDs have only been supported in Arizona, Colorado and Maryland so far. Apple shared a list of additional states committed to supporting the feature in the future, but none of the states on the list have revealed any plans yet.

Which US states are committed to supporting the feature?
In March 2022, Apple said the nine additional states listed below would “soon” allow residents to add their driver’s license or state ID to the Wallet app, but it’s unclear exactly when each state plans to do so. rolling out support for the feature.
Apple said the feature would also be supported in Puerto Rico.
In 2021, Apple Wallet VP Jennifer Bailey said the company was “already in discussions with many other states” and working to offer the feature nationwide in the future. Apple still has no plans to expand the feature to other countries.
Note that some states like Florida and Louisiana offer iPhone driver’s licenses through their own state-run apps, separate from this Wallet app feature.
Where can IDs be used in the Wallet app?
Driver’s licenses and state ID cards stored in the Wallet app can currently be used at select TSA checkpoints within select US airports:
- Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport (BWI)
- Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA)
- Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX)
- Denver International Airport (DEN)
Apple says travelers should refer to TSA checkpoint signage to confirm the feature’s availability.
