I used the Passbook feature of the Apple Watch today at the airport. I forgot to try the QR code at checkin but I don’t think it’ll work there because my wrist won’t fit under the reader. However, going through the TSA security line was a breeze. The QR code remains on the entire time the QR code is visible. In other words, you don’t need to worry about it turning off as you twist your wrist above the scanner. After check-in, I can now throw my phone in a bag and not worry about it. The Apple Watch doesn’t need to come off during the scan either. Traveling became a little bit easier today.
By the way, Passport does work with movie tickets too, in case you’re looking for a more frequent use.
