CINCINNATI —

Kentucky is among the first states to adopt digital driver's licenses, accessible on iPhones.

Apple announced Wednesday that it is working with several states across the country — including Kentucky — to roll out digital driver's licenses and state IDs.

Users will be able to add their identification to their digital wallets and accessible on their iPhone and Apple Watch.

Among the first practical uses for digital driver's licenses? Helping you through airport security lines.

{mprestriction ids="1,4,9"}The Transportation Security Administration will enable select airport security checkpoints and lanes in participating airports as the first locations customers can use their driver’s license or state ID in Apple Wallet.

Apple describes it as a more secure and convenient way for customers to present their driver’s licenses and state IDs on iPhone or Apple Watch.

“The addition of driver’s licenses and state IDs to Apple Wallet is an important step in our vision of replacing the physical wallet with a secure and easy-to-use mobile wallet,” said Jennifer Bailey, Apple’s vice president of Apple Pay and Apple Wallet.

Arizona and Georgia will be the first states to introduce this new innovation to their residents, with Connecticut, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Utah to follow.
