With the new iOS 15 update, Apple added the futuristic feature to create a digital world where you can keep your IDs safely. Hence, you can add a driver’s license to Apple Wallet on iPhone and Apple Watch. 

Apple announced that Arizona is the first state to offer driver’s license and state ID in Wallet and Apple is working with government authorities to expand this benefit for other regions.
