Apple Wallet adds contact-free student ID cards


Students at Duke University, the University of Alabama and the University of Oklahoma can now add their ID cards to Apple Wallet, enabling them to pay for their food and laundry, or access other facilities using their iPhones and Apple Watches.

Other than the purchases around the campus, users can also use the new contactless student ID to access their dorms, dining halls, libraries and campus events.

Jennifer Bailey, VP, internet services, says: “When we launched Apple Pay, we embarked on a goal to replace the physical wallet. By adding transit, loyalty cards and contactless ticketing we have expanded the capabilities of Wallet beyond payments, and we’re now thrilled to be working with campuses on adding contactless student ID cards to bring customers even more easy, convenient and secure experiences.”
