Governments to allow personal smartphones as offical ID

Th iPhone's iOS 13 NFC support will be useful for more than just hopping on the subway. Germany, Japan and England, are taking advantage of the upcoming software's support for Apple-approved NFC identification documents to let residents scan their ID cards and use them both online and for check-ins at international airports. You'll need to wait for both the release of iOS 13 (likely in September) and each government's app to make everything work, but this might just save you the trouble of pulling out your wallet to prove who you are.
