I Know That There Are Privacy Concerns, but I Look Forward to Digital ID

I won’t need to carry a wallet anymore. Just my phone.

Florida is expected to use Apple's digital ID system for driving licenses (reclaimthenet.org)

Apple is collaborating with Florida to bring support for the upcoming state digital ID to iPhone’s Wallet app. The state’s controversial digital ID is presented as a secure and verifiable way Floridians can provide identification via their smartphones.

According to Apple Insider, Florida’s digital ID might soon be available on iPhone’s Wallet app. Earlier reports indicated that Florida has finished developing the app, but it is not yet available to the public.

Once the app goes live, likely next month, Floridians will be able to download it on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.

The digital ID system will not initially be available on Apple Wallet as it is still a work in progress.

We just need to make sure that we do it right.
