Maryland Becomes Second State to add Mobile ID to Apple Wallet

  • Posted on May 27, 2022

Apple users are now able to scan and upload their Maryland driver’s license or state ID to their Apple Wallet, accessible on an iPhone or Apple Watch. Through a verification process with Face ID and photo recognition, your license is approved by the state and uploaded to your device.

Maryland is only the second state after Arizona to have this technology approved for use, but it is still not widely accepted. Only certain Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints at airports currently accept the Mobile ID.

Maryland’s Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) hopes that over time, all businesses and government entities will accept this form of identification, as the technology becomes more available and familiarized. You will hold your device up to a reader, and that will scan and process your ID and information to allow the user to not need a physical license. 

Take a look at this video from Maryland Department of Transportation on how to set-up and add your Mobile ID to your Apple Wallet:
