iPhone’s Wallet app keeps itself tidy by automatically archiving expired event tickets and boarding passes in iOS 15.

They won’t be removed from the app altogether, so you’ll still be able to access them. But expired items will be bundled into a separate list so that you don’t have to trawl through them to find a pass you need.

There are a whole host of smaller changes and improvements in iOS 15 that Apple didn’t get time to mention during its WWDC 2021 keynote on Monday. Several of them will make using the Wallet app much simpler.

In addition to adding ID cards and digital keys for your car, home, office and hotels, the Wallet app will start keeping itself tidy by archiving old items.

Wallet app gets big improvements in iOS 15

“Expired boarding passes and event tickets will be automatically moved to a separate list so you can easily access your relevant cards and passes without having to deal with the clutter of old passes,” Apple explains.

And there’s more: iOS 15 will also make it possible to save several tickets or passes to the Wallet app in one action. You will no longer have to add each one manually, which will be handy when booking family trips.

iOS 15 is scheduled to make its public debut alongside iPadOS 15 this fall. The first developer beta is available now, while public betas should roll out in the coming weeks.
