Apple Adds Support for Student IDs to Apple Wallet On iPhone, Watch
Apple today said the students at three universities can now use their iPhone and Apple Watch to substitute for their student ID card. Those studying at Duke University and the Universities of Alabama and Oklahoma can add their student ID to the Apple Wallet app and use the NFC radio on the phone or watch for contactless entry into their dorm, the library, the fitness center, and other buildings that require ID. Further, students will be able to make purchases via their ID and Apple Wallet at cafeterias, the book store, and other on-campus locations that accept student IDs for payment. Apple says Johns Hopkins, Santa Clara, and Temple Universities will adopt this functionality by the end of the year. Apple didn’t say if other universities will participate in the program.
