    Love the idea. I already use Apple Pay everywhere I can.  How do the state laws address this, though?  If I voluntarily hand law enforcement my phone to show them my ID, have I just given them the authority to go through it?  
    Its part of Apple Wallet, you just bring up your DL on the lock screen as you do with boarding passes, rail tickets etc. You do not unlock your phone.
    Yes, but with boarding passes, rail tickets, etc, I’m not actually giving my phone to law enforcement.  Even with the TSA, I’m placing my phone on a scanner and retrieving it.  I don’t actually hand it to the agent.  If I’m pulled over by a cop, they currently will take my license back to their squad car while they pull up my information in their system.  Are the police going to have a handheld scanner so I don’t have to relinquish possession of my phone?  Regardless of one’s overall feelings towards law enforcement, one has to acknowledge that some of them are not to be trusted.

    Now if there was a ‘cop mode’ that could be quickly enabled from Control Center that only presents ID’s & insurance cards, I might use it if it also locks the phone requiring a passcode to unlock the phone.  I think some courts have ruled that bio-metrics aren’t even considered protected like a passcode is.  Cops can’t make you give them your passcode without a warrant, but I believe at least in some jurisdictions, they don’t need a warrant to make you use touchID or FaceID to unlock your phone.
