Apple Wallet gives user an advantageous approach to organize and use their rewards cards, tickets, boarding passes, and gift vouchers. You can also bring up passes in your application with PassKit APIs, send it via email, or post them on the web. It also serves as the home for Apple Pay.
Well, these are just a bunch of basic features of Apple Wallet. There’s a lot more than that! So now we are going to discuss 5 useful hidden features of Apple Wallet that you might wanna consider.
Let’s discuss each one of em in detail.
1. Rearrange Passes as per Priority
If there are a few passes that you happen to use more frequently than others, you can quickly rearrange them into whatever order you want. Like you can keep the most used passes on the top and the ones that are not frequently used below them. To do this simply tap and hold on a pass. When it slides up marginally, you can drag it up or down and put it wherever you need it. This feature is helpful to a great degree especially if you have got a huge number of passes to take care.

2. Manually Refresh Passes
By default, the information which is displayed on passes is updated on an automatic basis like how much cash is left on your Starbucks card, or if gate changes on your boarding pass etc. But in case you’re in doubt and need to double check then for this you can manually refresh a pass as well. To do so, first tap on the respective pass, then select the “i” button from the bottom right corner of the screen. Now, swipe down on the screen to refresh it, just like you would in a number of other iPhone apps. You will now view new information (if any).
3. Share Passes with Family and Friends
To share a pass open up a pass and tap the “i” button down in the bottom-right corner of the screen. From there, tap the “Share Pass” option to instantly share it with the friends or family.
4. Open Apps Associated with Passes
Nothing is more frustrating than opening up your Starbucks Card in the Wallet application, just to find that you’re low on balance and need to refill the card. When you open up any pass, a small app icon shows up in the bottom-left corner. Tap that icon to open the app associated with the pass. In case, if the app is not already installed on your iOS device you will be directly redirected to the App Store.

5. Quick Access from Lock Screen
If you happen to use Apple Wallet a lot, you may be benefited by enabling a quick access from the lock screen itself, which makes things a ton less handy especially when you’re in rush. To do this, open the Setting, and after that tap the “Wallet and Apple Pay” option. Now enable the “Double-Click Home Button” option, if it isn’t already enabled. So now whenever you need to access the Apple wallet just double tap the home button.
