Suggested December 2023 Apple Reveals First Us States Working To Adopt Digital Apple Wallet Ids

After first announcing that iOS 15 would bring support for digital IDs via Apple Wallet back at WWDC in June, the first US states that will lead the adoption of the new standard have been named. There are 8 states announced for now that are committed to using Apple Wallet IDs and interestingly, they’re probably not the ones you’d guess. The first of the 8 to launch will be Arizona and Georgia and Apple also says it is already talking with “many more states” about adopting IDs in Apple Wallet.

Apple shared the specifics in a Newsroom post this morning with the first states working with them being Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah. Notably, the TSA will be among the first places to accept the Apple Wallet IDs at “select airport security checkpoints.”

Apple today announced that it is working with several states across the country, which will roll out the ability for their residents to seamlessly and securely add their driver’s license or state ID to Wallet on their iPhone and Apple Watch. Arizona and Georgia will be the first states to introduce this new innovation to their residents, with Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah to follow. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will enable select airport security checkpoints and lanes in participating airports as the first locations customers can use their driver’s license or state ID in Wallet. Built with privacy at the forefront, Wallet provides a more secure and convenient way for customers to present their driver’s licenses and state IDs on iPhone or Apple Watch.

VP of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet Jennifer Bailey shared her thoughts on the news including that Apple is “already in discussions with many more states.”

“The addition of driver’s licenses and state IDs to Apple Wallet is an important step in our vision of replacing the physical wallet with a secure and easy-to-use mobile wallet,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet. “We are excited that the TSA and so many states are already on board to help bring this to life for travelers across the country using only their iPhone and Apple Watch, and we are already in discussions with many more states as we’re working to offer this nationwide in the future.”

Apple also detailed more specifics about the security and privacy of IDs stored in Apple Wallet:

Wallet provides a convenient and more secure way to present driver’s licenses and state IDs, while offering superior security and privacy over a physical wallet.

Apple and the issuing states do not know when or where users present their IDs.

Driver’s licenses and state IDs in Wallet are only presented digitally through encrypted communication directly between the device and the identity reader, so users do not need to unlock, show, or hand over their device.

If a user misplaces their iPhone or Apple Watch, they can use the Find My app to lock their device and help locate it, or remotely erase a device.

Apple’s mobile ID implementation supports the ISO 18013-5 mDL (mobile driver’s license) standard which Apple has played an active role in the development of, and which sets clear guidelines for the industry around protecting consumers’ privacy when presenting an ID or driver’s license through a mobile device.

Representatives from Arizona, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah all shared excitement about adopting the feature in their states. Here’s what Iowa’s director of the Iowa Motor Vehicle Division had to say:

Apple says that states working on Apple Wallet ID adoption and the TSA will “share more information at a later date” about when support will be officially available with Arizona and Georgia slated to be the first two to launch support.

Will Apple Adopt The New Ipad Air’s Next

The new iPad Air is Apple’s first device with a re-engineered Touch ID fingerprint sensor, built into the tablet’s Top button. The move has prompted some watchers to point out that a return of Touch ID in the next iPhone would be a welcome one.

Touch ID in the Top button (aka the Power button) of the new iPad Air offers fast, easy and secure authentication. It’s a feat of engineering that has unfortunately gone largely unnoticed in a sea of Apple news following the “Time Flies” event.

→ How to configure and use Touch ID on the Mac

Apple is calling it in the iPad Air 3 press release their “next-generation Touch ID sensor.” While nothing has changed about it in terms of functionality, the new sensor had to be re-engineered to be smaller before it could be integrated into the Top button.

Yeah. But packed pretty full. That Touch ID on the iPad Air power button really got my attention. I’m wondering if we’ll see it on the iPhone 12.

— Dark Mode Dave (@davemark) September 15, 2023

Doing so was necessary to permit Apple’s engineers to put an edge-to-edge display on the iPad Air for the first time. And now, folks are increasingly arguing that it’s also an ideal location for a fingerprint sensor on the ucpoming iPhone 12.

Tom Warren, The Verge:

Apple has shifted most of its iPhone line over to Face ID in recent years, offering up a quick way to scan your face and unlock your phone. The only iPhone that doesn’t support Face ID is the iPhone SE, which still needs a large bezel to make room for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor at the bottom of the display.

Face ID was fine, in the before times, but over the past six months I’ve longed for a return to Touch ID. Like many others, I’m wearing a mask every time I leave my house, meaning I always have to enter my PIN code as the mask blocks Face ID from working correctly.

Aside from a fingerprint sensor built into its Power button, the next iPhone could also benefit from a nice feature request put forth earlier today by 9to5Mac’s Ben Lovejoy:

All we’re asking for here is for Apple to extend these auto-unlock capabilities so that if we swipe up on our iPhone or iPad, it checks whether our Watch is on our wrist and unlocked and, if so, unlocks the iOS device too.

It’s normally a safe thing to do because it only unlocks devices that use the same Apple ID, and only when they are within Bluetooth range. There may be a few situations where it wouldn’t be safe, but Apple already allows us to toggle the feature on or off, so that’s no issue.

I fully agree with the sentiment that the timing is perfect for Apple to make the move because having to skip Face ID when wearing a mask is a way bigger annoyance than it seemed at first – even with the ability to instantly skip a facial scan and jump straight to the passcode screen while wearing a mask.

Q1 2011 Unaudited Summary Data

Apple Releases First Macos Monterey 12.3 Beta To Developers

Just one day after launching macOS 12.2 to the public with over a dozen security updates, Apple has released the first macOS Monterey 12.3 beta to developers. The latest build arrives as Universal Control is slated to arrive sometime this spring.

Update: While Apple didn’t mention Universal Control in the release notes, we’ve discovered the feature has been enabled with the macOS 12.3 and iPadOS 15.4 betas.

There are some other new features to test like support for the PS5 DualSense adaptive trigger, a new ScreenCaptureKit framework for “high-performance screen recording,” and more.

The release notes also confirm that in macOS 12.3, the kernel used by Dropbox and Microsoft One Drive is deprecated.

Check out the full release notes below.

The first macOS 12.3 beta is starting to show up for developers via OTA and is also now available through Apple’s Developer website. The release comes with build number 21E5196i.

Apple also seeded developers with the first beta for iOS and iPadOS 15.4 today along with the same for tvOS and HomePod 15.4.

One major feature still missing from macOS Monterey that was announced at WWDC 2023 is Universal Control. Apple previously confirmed that it has been delayed until spring 2023 and remained absent from the 12.2 beta and official release. We’ll be keeping an eye out to see if it shows up during the macOS 12.3 beta period.

Apple also released the first macOS Big Sur 11.6.4 beta today alongside the Monterey update.

Official release notes haven’t been published for the first macOS 12.3 beta, but we’ll update this post as soon as we see them.

macOS 12.3 beta 1 release notes per Apple:

Overview Apple Pay New Features in macOS Monterey 12.3 Beta

Developers can express payment network preference in PKPaymentRequest. Network preference is determined by the order of supportedNetworks. This won’t override the user’s default card selection, but if the card is multi-SSD, then the network preference order determines which SSD is selected. (80827905)

Authentication New Features in macOS Monterey 12.3 Beta

Support is added to the passkey technology preview, enabling signing in to passkey-compatible websites and apps on Mac and iPad using an iPhone with a saved passkey. (87998252)

Game Controller New Features in macOS Monterey 12.3 Beta

Support is now available for new DualSense adaptive trigger firmware features available via GCDualSenseAdaptiveTrigger. (87433163)

iCloud Known Issues

iCloud+ Custom Email Domain set up flow can’t be initiated from the iCloud settings in System Preferences. (85212987)Workaround: Go to custom email domain to complete email verification and set up an iCloud+ Custom Email Domain.

Kernel Deprecations

The kernel extensions used by Dropbox Desktop Application and Microsoft OneDrive are no longer available. Both service providers have replacements for this functionality currently in beta. (85890896)

Known Issues

Virtual machines running on Apple silicon are unable to install macOS 12.3 beta. (88106053)

Installing to an empty volume from macOS Recovery might fail. (87730473)Workaround: Use a different version of macOS Recovery. For Intel-based Macs, boot using Option-Command-R; for Macs with Apple silicon, double-press and hold the power button.

Python Deprecations

Python 2.7 was removed from macOS in this update. Developers should use Python 3 or an alternative language instead. (39795874)

Shortcuts Resolved in macOS Monterey 12.3 Beta

The Shortcuts Events app, which provides scripting functionality for Shortcuts, no longer needs to be opened once before it can be used. The bundle has moved to /System/Library/CoreServices. If an app relies on the location of the bundle, the code needs to be updated to reference the new location. (85249991)

SkyLight Known Issues

In ScreenCaptureKit, if an origin other than (0,0) is specified in the destinationRect or sourceRect, the contentRect is incorrect. (87363220)

StoreKit New Features in macOS Monterey 12.3 Beta Resolved in macOS Monterey 12.3 Beta

updates now emits unfinished transactions when iterating for the first time. (85294525)

Apple News+ Uk Diary: First Impressions Of The Uk Offering

Apple News+ launched in the UK yesterday, more than six months after it did so in the US.

I hadn’t been too impressed by the free offerings in Apple News and had actually removed the app from both my iPhone and iPad, but Apple News+ in the UK gave me a chance to re-evaluate it with its boosted content…

The name Apple News has always been somewhat misleading. What you get in reality are some newspapers and lots of magazines. That hasn’t changed. It would really be more accurate to name the service Apple Magazines (and Newspapers).

Indeed, the only UK newspaper added yesterday was The Times and its sister edition The Sunday Times. However, the Independent and Guardian were already on board the free offering so that does cover the three main papers for me.

But Apple sweetened the deal considerably by including access to two key US papers: the LA Times and Wall Street Journal.

I’m not really a magazine guy these days. When I reviewed Magzter Gold back in 2023, they gave me a one-year subscription, but I’d more-or-less stopped using it within a few weeks, and deleted the app long before the subscription expired.

Indeed the line between websites and magazines has now been blurred to such an extent, it’s not immediately obvious why the digital magazine format exists. My colleague Bradley made the same observation a few days ago.

The problem, in my opinion, is that people don’t care about digital magazines. We’ve tried this with the Daily magazine (which I enjoyed), with Newsstand, and now with Apple News+. The content isn’t necessarily the problem, but rather the packaging. Why do I care if an article is inside of an app that is then packaged inside of another thing? I want to read the article […]

If I wanted to read Athlon Sports on my iPad or iPhone, I’d be content just reading it on Safari with Reader View enabled. I don’t need it in a faux magazine to enjoy it.

I’m of much the same view. If a magazine has a website – and they all do – then I’ll tend to just go there.

That said, the deal does include three magazines worth money to me: New York, Scientific American, and The Atlantic.

So although I can look at the deal and on the one hand say I’m not getting many publications of interest to me, there’s another way of looking at it. Instead of saying Apple is selling me more than 150 publications, most of which don’t interest me, I can think of it as the company offering me a subscription to seven publications for just over a quid a month each. That’s a decent deal – with the bonus of a bunch of other magazines I might sample from time to time.

The big unknown with Apple News+ UK

The first big unknown for me at present is how much of the Times and WSJ we’re getting. Both publications say it’s not everything, but it isn’t clear what that really means. My colleague Benjamin Mayo has found that if you see a paywalled piece on the web, you can go to the share sheet and select Open in Apple News … and so far it’s always been there.

Archives are one difference we do know about, but I honestly can’t think of a time when I’ve wanted to look up an old article in a specific publication. If I’m searching for an old news story, it’s typically because I want to remember when exactly something happened or remind myself of some detail, and then any Google search does the job perfectly well.

There may be some sleight of hand going on here. The papers want to retain their direct subscribers, so they need to be able to say Apple News+ subscribers don’t get everything – and they reinforce this idea by limiting discoverability in the app – but there is perhaps much more there than it would appear.

I will get one clue. Quite a lot of paywalled Times pieces pop up in my Facebook newsfeed, so I’ll be able to see whether I’m able to access all of these in Apple News+.

The second unknown for me personally

Will I let it renew at the end of the month’s trial? I think that will be determined by two factors. First, as mentioned, whether or not I find missing content. Second, how often I actually open the app. I tend to get most of my news from the BBC News site and app, so when I read a paper, it’s more for long-form pieces: features and op-eds. And those are competing with other forms of entertainment, mostly books, social media, and the web.

If I do use the app regularly, and I do find all the content I want, then I think it’ll be a no-brainer. Let’s see …

Apple Announces Plans For A New Campus As It Pledges $350B To Us Economy

Update: Trump has called Apple’s announcements today a “huge win for American workers and the USA.”

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 17, 2023

Apple today has announced a new commitment to contribute $350 billion to the US economy over the next five years. The news also includes the company’s expectations to create thousands of new jobs and how its US operations will grow with a new campus.

Apple announced the news in a press release today titled, Apple accelerates US investment and job creation. Included are plans on ‘Growing Apple’s US Operations’, ‘Investing in Apple’s Domestic Suppliers and Manufacturing Partners’, and ‘Preparing Students for the App Economy’.

The headline news is that Apple will invest $350B in the US economy over the next five years, and is on track to spend $55B with domestic suppliers and manufacturers in 2023 alone.

The company expects to create 20,000 more jobs “at Apple” by 2023. Apple already has over 84,000 employees in the US. It is also allocating $5B (up from $1B) to the Advanced Manufacturing fund, and says that is currently does business with 9,000 American suppliers across all 50 states.

The announcement also makes mention that the company plans to repatriate roughly $245B of its overseas cash resulting in a reduced $38B tax bill (based on the one-time 15.5% rate).

Apple, already the largest US taxpayer, anticipates repatriation tax payments of approximately $38 billion as required by recent changes to the tax law. A payment of that size would likely be the largest of its kind ever made.

Notably, even though Apple Park is still nearing completion, the company has plans for another new US based campus.

The company plans to establish an Apple campus in a new location, which will initially house technical support for customers. The location of this new facility will be announced later in the year.

The press release also makes mention that all of Apple’s US offices, stores, and facilities run on 100% renewable energy.

CEO Tim Cook shared strong and positive sentiment on the US investments.

“Apple is a success story that could only have happened in America, and we are proud to build on our long history of support for the US economy,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We believe deeply in the power of American ingenuity, and we are focusing our investments in areas where we can have a direct impact on job creation and job preparedness. We have a deep sense of responsibility to give back to our country and the people who help make our success possible.”

As for ‘Preparing Students for the App Economy’ the company touts its Swift Playgrounds app and Swift language as “powerful yet easy to learn,” and notes that over 100,000 students and teachers have experienced a coding class at an Apple Store.

Apple also has plans to bring more educational opportunities to teachers and students through its ConnectED program, thought the press release doesn’t provide specifics.

Read the full press release below or at Apple’s Newsroom:

Combining new investments and Apple’s current pace of spending with domestic suppliers and manufacturers — an estimated $55 billion for 2023 — Apple’s direct contribution to the US economy will be more than $350 billion over the next five years, not including Apple’s ongoing tax payments, the tax revenues generated from employees’ wages and the sale of Apple products. “Apple is a success story that could only have happened in America, and we are proud to build on our long history of support for the US economy,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We believe deeply in the power of American ingenuity, and we are focusing our investments in areas where we can have a direct impact on job creation and job preparedness. We have a deep sense of responsibility to give back to our country and the people who help make our success possible.”

Apple, already the largest US taxpayer, anticipates repatriation tax payments of approximately $38 billion as required by recent changes to the tax law. A payment of that size would likely be the largest of its kind ever made.

Investing in Apple’s Domestic Suppliers and Manufacturing Partners

Preparing Students for the App Economy

Apple will expand these initiatives and add new programs to support teachers and teacher training. The company is also increasing funding for its ConnectED program, so students in historically underserved communities have a chance to learn app coding skills and enjoy other benefits of technology in the classroom.
