Apple's new mobile wallet solution is called Passbook. And it puts all your loyalty cards and tickets and coupons all in one spot and will debut in iOS 6. Now, the Cupertino company has earned another patent for NFC travel check ins.
The filing describes a hypothetical app called iTravel, and it'll save all your reservations in one spot and loads them up automatically when you board a plane, rent a car, check in at a hotel and more. It has provisions for airport security as well, and would be able to grab your identification info like your passport, ID, and fingerprints and help you pass through security with a breeze.
But just how much different is this to Passbook? And would iTravel be part of Passbook's functionality when it launches?
