Apple announced on Tuesday that it will soon be bringing COVID-19 vaccination cards to the Apple Wallet.
The tech company rolled out a number of new features with its iOS 15 update, including upgrades to the Wallet app that will soon allow it to support driver’s licenses and digital keys. iOS 15 will also allow users to download and store verifiable health records, including COVID-19 vaccinations and test results, in the Health app, and users can choose to share this information with third parties that may require proof of vaccination, including airlines, event venues and other businesses.
It’s unclear when COVID-19 vaccination cards will be available to store in the Wallet app, but Apple developers say it will arrive in an upcoming software update.
Apple first touted its enhancements to its Health app during its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. New tools in iOS 15 can be used to identify, measure and understand changes in a person’s health, including resting heart rate, sleep and cardio fitness, and can now be easier shared with trusted contacts.
