According to Apple, students will soon be able to connect their ID cards to the Apple Wallet. Three universities are testing the programme.
The Universities of Alabama, Duke University, and the University of Oklahoma now allow students to link their student IDs to Wallet. By the end of the year, Johns Hopkins, Santa Clara, and Temple Universities will be added to this list.
Those who follow in 2019 will depend on how things go. The sole restriction is that in order for schools to receive support for student ID, they must actively collaborate with Apple. Without the assistance of the company, the feature cannot be enabled.
This implies that students will be able to enter the dorm, study halls, dining halls, gyms, libraries, and more using their Apple Watch or iPhone. They only have to hold their preferred device in front of a card reader.
Additionally, students will be able to pay at all locations on and off campus that take real student ID cards for supplies at the bookstore, laundry, or meals. Undoubtedly, a safer method of making purchases.
Getting around campus is simple thanks to Apple Watch student ID support.
Apparently, the Cupertino company has been testing the employee badge capabilities at Apple Park, so hopefully everything will go off without a hitch. It’s conceivable that the business will eventually make the capabilities available to other public and private entities.
According to Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Internet Services at Apple, “When we created Apple Pay, we embarked on a quest to replace the traditional wallet.”
We’re excited to be working with universities to incorporate contactless student ID cards now that we’ve expanded the possibilities of Wallet beyond payments.
All that’s left to do now is for someone to come up with a solution to get rid of those annoying computer passwords.
