3 Universities Add Student ID’s to Apple’s Wallet
Dow 30 component Apple (AAPL) revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud. Apple’s more than 100,000 employees are dedicated to making the best products on earth, and to “leaving the world better than they found it.”
Recently, the students of Duke University, University of Alabama, and the University of Oklahoma have added their student ID card to Apple Wallet. Instead of carrying around their issued student ID, they can now just use their iPhone or Apple Watch to get around campus and use it to pay for laundry, coffee, food, and even to get into the dorms, the library, and the on-campus gym.
Students with iPhone or Apple Watches on these campuses can leave their wallets behind and no longer have to remember to take it everywhere with them on campus. The digital ID just needs to be held near the reader where physical student ID cards are accepted.
Other universities expected to add its student IDs to Apple’s Wallet by the end of the school year include Johns Hopkins, Santa Clara, and Temple.
