Iowa is looking to give time a little bit of a push into the future, as the state's Department of Transportation announced on Thursday that it will be creating a releasing an official state application in 2015, which will act as a persons' ID. The app will serve as an official Identification Card in the state, meaning that a physical card will not be needed. The user will be able to update current information, which automatically ships to the DOT databases.
The Iowan officials have stated that that app will use a PIN code for security, but with Apple's Touch ID becoming the norm, we're hoping that state integrates that as well. Virtual IDs are already allowed by drivers to carry as proof of insurance, so an official app just makes things a bit more secure and legitimate. Iowa's DOT adds that the app will begin beta testing in 2015.
