Wallet-formerly known as the Passbook-is Apple’s answer to scanning all the cards that spill out of your wallet, purse, or pockets-including Apple Pay. Wallet stores virtual versions of all your passes, tickets, coupons, credit cards, debit cards, and loyalty cards so you can easily access them at any time. Wallet is also the current location and always online, so Wallet can even pull up and update the balance of your coffee, store card or gate number on your boarding pass, so you always know how much you have or if you need to be.

How to add cards to Wallet

Wallet is backed by everything from cafes to airlines, party services to movie theatres, conferences to loyalty cards. All you have to do is fill it out. While all applications make the Wallet add-on obvious, there are places where you can usually find it.

Launch an application that supports wallet cards.

The applications are all different but navigate to Payment or Add Card tab.

Tap the Add to Passbook option (some applications may say “wallet” instead of “booklet”).

You should see a preview of the card. Tap on Add in the upper right corner.

Remember that the process of adding cards to your wallet can vary greatly from application to application, depending on how the company or developer decides to use them. From boarding passes to loyalty cards to pay for your coffee or lunch, many companies support them. You may just have to do a little digging inside your favorite applications.

How to refresh cards in Wallet

Many cards in the Wallet application refresh such as balances or automatic door numbers, sometimes these features are not implemented once network connections are lost, or problems like these occur. Fortunately, you can always manually update your passes to make sure you have the most current and accurate information.

Launch the Wallet application on your iPhone.

Tap the map you want to refresh.

Tap the Info button in the lower right corner.

Tap and hold your finger next to the top of the map tab.

Pull down from the top of the map and release to refresh.

How to rearrange maps in Wallet App

Just like in the real world, you can quickly and easily shuffle the cards in your wallet.

Launch the Wallet application on your iPhone.

Tap and hold the map you want to move.

Drag it to the position you want and release it.

How to share Wallet cards

Launch the Wallet app on your iPhone.

Tap the map you want to share.

Tap the Share button in the lower left corner of the pass.

Tap the method you want to use to share the pass. These include email, messaging, Parachuting, and any other third-party applications or extensions that support Wallet.

How to remove cards from Wallet

Once you’ve finished using a pass – the movie is over, your flight has landed, or you’ve changed the coffee chains – you won’t need to clutter up Passbook anymore. Luckily, once you know how, passes are really easy to delete.

Launch the Wallet app on your iPhone.

Tap the map you want to delete.

Tap the Info button in the lower right corner to flip the map over.

Tap the Delete button in the upper left corner.

Tap Delete in the pop-up menu.

How to enable / disable automatic updates in Wallet

By default, Wallet automatically updates all of its cards and switches at regular intervals or when it is specifically informed of a change. This can be your balance, your door, or nothing at all. If you don’t want Passbook to update automatically, you can turn it off and make sure the only changes that are made are the changes you update manually.

Launch the Wallet app on your iPhone.

Tap the map you want to turn automatic updates.

Tap the information button in the lower right corner of the map.

Adjust the automatic update slider by moving it to the right to enable updates, and to the left to disable.

How to enable / disable access to the lock screen for Wallet

Although the Wallet’s ability to pass over your lock screen is convenient, comfort always comes at the price of privacy and security. In other words, anything you can access at a stroke, anyone else who gets their hands on your iPhone can access it this way, without having to enter your password or use Touch ID. For most people, it will never be a problem. For those who are incredibly privacy and security-conscious, Apple makes it easy to disable Wallet on the lock screen.

Tap Application Settings on the Home screen of your iPhone.

Tap Wallet & Apple Pay.

Double-click the Home button slider to the left to disable access to all currency cards on your lock screen.

How to enable / disable location access for Wallet

Passbook knows when to show your coffee shop map or boarding pass on the lock screen because it uses GPS and other location services on your iPhone to know when you’re near the coffee shop or airport. Although your location is never shared with anyone else, you can always be comfortable. If you’re willing to give up the convenience that comes with Passbook knowing when to give you easy access to your passes, you can turn the location off.

Launch the Settings app on your iPhone.

Tap Privacy.

Tap location services.

Tap Wallet.

Tap Never.
