Apple Working To Store Passports, ID’s In Devices

PATENTS SHOW APPLE WANTS ITS DEVICES TO TAKE THE PLACE OF YOUR PASSPORT, DRIVER'S LICENSE AND OTHER FORMS OF IDENTIFICATION

(CNN) – Apple wants its devices to take the place of your passport, driver’s license and other forms of ID.

The tech giant has filed five patent applications for the technology.

They detail how a digital copy of your ID can be stored, transmitted and confirmed.

Apple does not use the word iPhone in the applications, but refers to “devices.”

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