Can I add anything to Apple Wallet?

Answered by John Hunt

Adding items to Apple Wallet is incredibly convenient and versatile. In addition to manually adding cards and passes, you can also add them from various sources such as emails, texts, AirDrop sharing, notifications, and even by scanning QR codes or barcodes.

Let’s start with emails and texts. If you receive an email containing a link to a card or pass, you can simply tap on the link, and it will prompt you to add it to Apple Wallet. The same goes for texts or iMessages – if someone sends you a link to a card or pass, just tap on it, and you can add it to your Wallet with ease.

Additionally, if someone nearby shares a pass with you through AirDrop, you’ll receive a notification asking if you want to add it to your Wallet. This is incredibly handy when you’re with friends or colleagues who want to share their passes with you quickly.

After using Apple Pay at a merchant, you might receive a notification on your lock screen. If you swipe left on the notification, you’ll see an “Add to Apple Wallet” option. Tapping on that will add the corresponding card or pass to your Wallet effortlessly.

Another cool feature is the ability to scan QR codes or barcodes with your iPhone’s camera or the Code Scanner feature. If you come across a QR code or barcode that represents a card or pass, simply open the Camera app or Code Scanner, aim it at the code, and a notification will pop up with the option to add the item to your Wallet.

It’s worth mentioning that the process of adding cards and passes to Apple Wallet may slightly differ depending on the iOS version you have. However, the overall concept remains the same – you’re able to add cards and passes to your Wallet from various sources, making it a one-stop location for all your digital cards and passes.

Personally, I find this feature incredibly helpful. It saves me the hassle of carrying physical cards or searching through emails and texts to find important passes. With Apple Wallet, everything is neatly organized and easily accessible, right at my fingertips.

So, whether you’re adding cards and passes from emails, texts, AirDrop, notifications, or by scanning QR codes or barcodes, Apple Wallet provides a seamless experience for managing all your digital items. It’s a game-changer that simplifies your life and keeps everything in one convenient place.
