A few days ago, in an interview, the head of Apple Pay Jennifer Bailey recalled that ?soon? students from three universities in the United States could start using the Wallet iOS 12 to enter dormitories, pay for laundry and perform other functions in campuses with the iPhone or Apple Watch.
Well, that day has come. Starting today, students from Duke University, gives University of Alabama and the Oklahoma University can use their iGadgets as identifications and means of access in their respective campuses.
"The iPhone and Apple Watch have taken us into a new era of mobility, helping to transform everyday experiences," commented Bailey. ?When we launched Apple Pay, we embarked on a goal of replacing the physical wallet. By adding public transportation, loyalty cards and contactless tickets, we?ve expanded Wallet?s capabilities beyond payments, and we?re now excited to work with campuses to add contactless student ID cards to bring consumers even more practical, convenient and secure experiences. ?
The iOS 12 Wallet can be used to access dormitories, cafeterias, a gym, library and various university events, as well as pay for books, laundry and meals.
By the end of this year, three other American universities will join the system: Johns Hopkins, Santa Clara and Temple. And that it expands soon in the world, because it is really cool and modern.
