The company showed how you’ll be able to scan your driver’s license or state ID in participating US states, which will then be encrypted and stored in the iPhone’s secure enclave.

Apple has much more planned than just digital IDs according to the report:
…Apple says it’s working to allow hotels to distribute room card keys via Apple Wallet, allowing you to collect a room key before you arrive at a hotel.
Home keys and work keys were also announced as coming to the Wallet app. The new keys feature is also coming to Apple Watch, Apple says.
…Apple reiterated that it’s also adding features for unlocking cars from BMW and other manufacturers using the ultra-wideband chip found in new iPhones and Apple Watches.
Apple remains one of the largest, most profitable, and most influential tech companies in the world.
Having recently released the AirTag, they are well on their way to ensuring millions of consumers adopt Internet of Things (IoT) tech as a form of convenience without understanding the deeper implications of the emerging all-pervasive surveillance grid.
Ancient grey haired naked rebel and activist always looking to better the Human condition. Dreaming about what could be. Lifting the veil on the imposed illusion. Only a few will survive the depopulation wars fought by the (self proclaimed) 'Chosen Ones'. Only a few will survive the mindfuck. Maybe some of the stuff I write or share will be of some value (to you). I share it out of love knowing Mankind deserves so much better.
