The iPhone driver’s license feature is expanding slowly and is only available in three states

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 iPhone and Apple Watch, providing a convenient and 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, with only Arizona, Colorado, and Maryland supporting wallet app IDs so far. Apple shared a list of additional states that have committed to supporting the feature in the future, but none of the states on the list have announced plans yet.

Which US states support the feature? Which US states have committed to support the feature?

In March 2022, Apple said the additional nine states listed below would “soon” allow residents to add their driver’s license or state ID to the Wallet app, but it’s unclear when exactly each state plans to roll out support for the feature .

Connecticut Georgia Hawaii Iowa Kentucky Mississippi Ohio Oklahoma Utah

Apple said the feature will also be supported in Puerto Rico.

In 2021, Apple Wallet VP Jennifer Bailey said the company was “already in talks with many more states” and was working on rolling out the feature nationwide in the future. Apple has yet to announce any plans to expand the feature to other countries.

Note that some states, such as Florida and Louisiana, offer iPhone driver’s licenses through their own state-operated apps that are separate from this wallet app feature.

Driver’s licenses and ID cards stored in the Wallet app can currently be used at select TSA checkpoints at select US airports:

Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) Denver International Airport (DEN)

Apple says travelers should refer to signage at the TSA checkpoint to confirm the feature’s availability.
