iPhone Helps College Students Navigate Contactless Behavior

2020 could be called the year of contactless behavior, and there is a possibility that this is going to be become routine in society for the year 2021.

Cellular devices have become a necessity for individuals in this new lifestyle. The iPhone allows access to various new features that help with contactless behavior. For example, identification, Apple Pay, news updates, health, and much more.

“Apple brings contactless student IDs on iPhone and Apple Watch to more universities,” said Hannah Wong, a Journalist at Apple.com. Although this has not been tested at Victor Valley College, this is a new gadget added for other students. “More than 100,000 college students will enjoy the ease and convenience of carrying their student IDs on iPhone and Apple Watch,” said Wong.

It is very easy to use. “Once students add their student ID to Apple Wallet, they simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch near a reader anywhere physical student ID cards are accepted on and off campus,” Wong explained.

Long time Apple product user Yorman Villegas, a VVC student, explained: “This iPhone/Apple Watch ID can be beneficial for professors as well. This type of ID can be used to enter buildings, pay for food, scan parking passes, and more”

“The University of San Francisco, University of Kentucky, University of Vermont and various other have been implementing this new feature, and I would like to see it at our college,” said Villegas.

Not only can this be beneficial for identification purposes on campus, but it can be used as security for all campuses. The new iPhone and Apple Watch ID for colleges can be beneficial in countless of ways for both the students and professors. Is this something you would like to see at your college? Please comment below.
