Colorado iPhone Users Can Now Add IDs to Wallet App

Colorado residents can now add their IDs and licenses to their iPhone and Apple Watch Wallet apps. They can be used as a form of identification in place of a physical card for TSA checkpoints at select airports.

Colorado’s Department of Revenue announced the news on Wednesday. The Wallet-based ID or license can be presented at select TSA checkpoints at the Denver airport. Digital IDs are available to individuals with a current, valid Colorado-issued driver’s license or ID.

The Wallet ID is intended to be used as a companion to the physical ID or driver’s license, not as a full replacement. Colorado residents must continue to carry their physical driver’s license or ID with them, as the Wallet ID can only be used at airports.

The Department of Revenue created a rather Apple-like video to demonstrate how to add a Colorado ID to Apple Wallet.

Apple with iOS 15 added support for allowing users from participating U.S. states to add their licenses and state IDs to the Wallet app. Currently, Arizona, Maryland, and Colorado support the feature. Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Ohio, Oklahoma, and Utah are currently working on providing support for the feature.
