Apple Wallet Adds Mobile Access Control Support

By Brian Rhodes, Published Jun 09, 2021, 09:28am EDT (Info+)

Now Apple has announced plans to fix all three of those limitations, with HID and Proxy announcing support already.

IPVM examines Apple's announcement and what this means for mobile access in the future.
