The iPhone 13 will store digital driver’s licenses | Digital Trends Spanish

In the United States, Apple prepares the arrival of digital driver’s licenses for the next iPhone 13.

These are just one type of official document that Apple intends to digitize, the other being state identification cards. For this, they are in talks with some states and it has already been confirmed that both Arizona and Georgia will work together with the company to execute the bread.

Driver’s licenses and digital IDs will allow, for example, that these can be used directly from the phone without the need for a plastic card as before.

This could be very useful in environments such as airports, where Apple ensures that it will only be necessary to pass the phone through a digital reader without having to unlock the phone (or hand it over to an agent). For this, they reached an agreement with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA, for its acronym in English), which will install this type of readers in some airports.

The technology to store digital IDs will arrive alongside iOS 15, the next version of the operating system that is very likely to debut with the new iPhone 13 in late 2021.

However, the digitization of documents as critical as driver’s licenses or identity cards raises some questions related to privacy issues. It is not known, for example, how secure the technology developed by Apple is and how secure the data will be in the event of a leak or hack.

Either way, this has not prevented the aforementioned states – Georgia and Arizona – from being the top of a longer list that includes Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Utah, Connecticut and Oklahoma. In all of them, the digitization of identity documents could give iPhone users greater comfort, especially in the face of long lines before boarding a plane.
