The compan has additionally said other states such as Colorado, Hawaii, Mississippi, Ohio and the territory of Puerto Rico are said to be the next states to get support for it, with other states like Iowa, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma and Utah that have also been said to be getting this feature too.

Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet, said this a feature that the company cannot wait to rollout to more users.

“We’re thrilled to bring the first driver’s license and state ID in Wallet to Arizona today, and provide Arizonans with an easy, secure, and private way to present their ID when traveling, through just a tap of their iPhone or Apple Watch,” she said. “We look forward to working with many more states and the TSA to bring IDs in Wallet to users across the US.”

In order to get this feature, users will have to be running iOS 15.4 on an iPhone 8 or newer, as well as watchOS 8.4 on an Apple Watch Series 4 or newer.
