Apple Wallet Update Now Compatible with Ontario Vaccine Certificate

TORONTO — Individuals who use an Apple mobile device can now choose to add their enhanced vaccine certificate with official QR code directly to their Apple Wallet. This feature is available with iOS 15.1, Apple’s newest operating system for iPhones that launched this week, and provides users with a convenient way to access and display their proof of vaccination from their device. Apple users with the iOS 15.1 operating system can save their vaccine certificate with QR code to their Apple Wallet and Apple Health app. To do so, once an individual has opened their enhanced certificate with QR code on their computer desktop or by printing it out, they can follow these easy steps:

  • Open the iPhone camera.

  • Point the camera at the QR code. Once the QR code is in focus and centred on the phone screen, the phone will scan it automatically.

  • Once the phone scans the code, users will be prompted to save it to Apple Wallet and Apple Health.

Users do not have to redownload their enhanced certificate with QR code to add it to their Apple Wallet. Anyo
