Apple announced last summer, during WWDC 2021, that several states were going to allow storing the identification documentation of their citizens in Wallet. Today we have known what are the conditions that Apple imposes on these states, and they are not few.
Not only can credit cards be stored in Wallet, shortly it will be possible to also store our identification documentation, what we know here as DNI, on our iPhone. For this, collaboration between states and Apple is absolutely essential, which is why this novelty is currently restricted to a few states in the United States. And it is that the conditions that Apple imposes for this collaboration are quite demanding as has been published.
The first condition already suggests that things are not going to be simple: states must guarantee that they will provide the necessary resources so that the implementation of this new system will be carried out as Apple has planned. And when it comes to resources, financial and personal resources are included.. In addition to this, the states will have to make the necessary communications so that their citizens are aware of this program, the expenses will be on their part, and also Apple must have access to the marketing materials before their launch to approve them. In addition, Apple also washes its hands in terms of the identification process, which will be the sole and exclusive responsibility of the states.
