Apple is planning to support universities and colleges through the Apple Wallet app. The app will now be the student’s ID needed for digital pass entries. However, only select universities are listed for this new Apple feature.

According to the official Apple site, Apple Wallet will also support student IDs in the upcoming school year. Many students have been using Apple’s payments apps through their iPhones and Apple Watches as of late, and Apple wants to up its service by being compatible with their school’s security systems.

The universities and colleges that’ll receive support for the new feature are Clemson University, University of Tennessee, Georgetown University, University of San Francisco, University of Kentucky, Arkansas State University, University of Vermont, Norfolk State University, South Dakota State University, University of North Alabama, Louisburg College, and Chowan University.

Other campuses that will also gain support are University of Oklahoma, Duke University, Temple University, University of Alabama, Marshall University, Johns Hopkins University, and Mercer University.

Moreover, Apple will also partner up with CBORD, Allegion and HID to further boost the student credential systems soon. Students of the aforesaid universities will be able to take advantage of the improved campus credential system which Apple said removes the need for bringing physical wallets anymore.

As of late, Apple has been aggressively launching new services. Most of its announcements have been about introduction and improvements to existing services. Meanwhile, the company has also been bolstering the features and adding more uses to the Apple Pay and Apple Wallet card.

The company’s focus has shifted from introducing new, top-of-the-line devices into introducing services. Apple’s expansion toward more universities and college systems also shows the company’s interest in adding more avenues for the Apple Wallet, Apple Card, and Apple Pay.

By late 2019, most of these services would be officially launched and start catering to many Apple users. Apple iPhone, Apple Watch and iPad owners will have to wait and see which industries and businesses will Apple expand its services with next.
