What's new with Wallet

  • mass deletion interface for your passes
  • lighter color scheme
  • from iOS 11, only encrypted NFC passes are supported. Register yours at developer.apple.com/apple-pay

Opt-out of sharing

  • Passes can now be opted-out of sharing
  • Useful for single-use items, like loyalty cards or tickets

To take advantage of this, set the new top-level sharingProhibited key with value true in your pass.json:

{

}
  • Note: users can still share the pass in older versions of iOS.
