Apple wants its devices to replace hard-paper passports, licenses, and other identifications

Studio 814

Apple wants its devices to take the place of your passport, driver’s license and other forms of identification.

The tech giant has filed five patent applications for the technology. They detail how a digital copy of your I.D. can be stored, transmitted and confirmed. Apple does not use the word “i-Phone” in the patent applications, but refers to “devices.”

The same six inventors are credited in the five patent applications.
