Apple’s iOS 15.4 beta lets you add COVID-19 passport to Wallet app
In the European Union, digital COVID-19 certificates are currently near-unavoidable, required for air travel, at border crossings, and often at events, restaurants, and sports venues. And while Apple’s iPhone comes with a Wallet app which holds digital versions of credit cards, boarding passes, and various tickets, it currently doesn’t support the EU COVID-19 certificate.
This will change soon. According to MacRumors, the latest beta version of iOS 15.4 will give EU citizens the option to add a COVID-19 certificate to their Wallet app.
The process of adding the certificate will be simple. Point your iPhone’s camera to the certificate’s QR code and tap the yellow notification that will add the certificate to your Wallet and Health apps.
According to MacStories editor Federico Viticci, the feature is not fully live in the iOS 15.4 beta. In a tweet, he said he was able to add his Italian vaccination record to the Health app, but it did not show in the Wallet yet. He also said that the record will show under “Immunization records” in the Health app.
Tech blogger Luca Ansevini was however able to add his vaccination record to the Wallet app.
The feature has been live for users in the U.S., the UK, and Canada since iOS 15.1.
