Apple is going to make it simpler for you to remove them from your phone if you don’t want to trust them with your digital wallet. The seventh developer beta of iOS 16 was made available by Apple today. When Apple releases iOS 16.1 to the general public, code found in the most recent developer beta suggests that the Wallet app will be able to be removed. This information was discovered by 9to5Mac.
Code seen by 9to5Mac makes it clear that the Wallet app has become “deletable” with iOS 16.1. Unsurprisingly, some features like Apple Pay won’t work without the Wallet app. In this case, users will see a message telling them to “Download the Wallet app from the App Store.” While the Wallet app becoming a deletable app with iOS 16 is a nice addition by Apple, the big software news from today is that iPadOS 16 is delayed. Apple confirmed that, instead of launching with iPadOS 16.0, the company will delay the release and only make the software available to the public with iPadOS 16.1 later this fall.
Of course, if you delete the Wallet app, you’re going to lose access to a lot of features you may be currently using. The app allows users to store debit and credit cards, Apple’s own Apple Card and Apple Cash, transit cards, loyalty cards, tickets, and more. Deleting the app will cut off a user’s ability to use any of these items as well as Apple Pay (unless they download another wallet app of course). Trying to use something like Apple Pay will then prompt a user to download the Wallet app again from the App Store.
Apple is expected to host an event in September where the company is expected to announce the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8, and AirPods Pro 2. iOS 16 should arrive shortly after with iPadOS 16 expected to launch in October where the company is also expected to host an event to release new iPads and Macs.
