Add to Apple Wallet
Students at those will be able to add their ID to Apple Wallet. They can then use their iPhone or Apple Watch to do things entering dorms or buying lunch. Apple added support for key campus credentials and mobile access suppliers CBORD, Allegion and HID as part of the expansion.
Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Internet Services, commented:
We’re happy to add to the growing number of schools that are making getting around campus easier than ever with iPhone and Apple Watch. We know students love this feature. Our university partners tell us that since launch, students across the country have purchased 1.25 million meals and opened more than 4 million doors across campuses by just tapping their iPhone and Apple Watch.
