How to have our COVID certificate on the Apple Watch with Wallet
Wallet is one of the most useful iOS apps if you know how to use it. You can store from credit cards, debit cards, plane tickets, concert and movie tickets and, as you may have guessed, your COVID certificate. The best thing is that the application automatically syncs data between iPhone and Apple Watch, so if you have followed the steps in this post and you have your COVID certificate on your iPhone, You just have to open Wallet on your Apple Watch to be able to access it quickly.
However, if for any reason you cannot save the COVID certificate in the Wallet application, We will leave you a second method that will be just as effective when you need to show it in an establishment.
How to have the COVID certificate on the Apple Watch using Photos
For this second method we will use the Photos application of our iPhone. The process is pretty straightforward, and It will help you if you have the COVID certificate saved digitally, in PDF format or on paper. In any of the three cases we will have to bring the COVID certificate to our Photo Library, so follow these steps.
In case of having the COVID certificate in digital or PDF format, you will only have to take a screenshot of the document so that it is saved in your library. In case of having it on paper, you will have to take a sharp and clear photo, and you can do this by scanning the document from your iPhone using the Notes app.
Once you have the image in your photo gallery, just crop the image until only the QR code is visible. Mind you, make sure you leave a white space around the code or the corners of the Apple Watch will eat it up and you won’t be able to scan it successfully. Once you have it ready and trimmed, do the following.
- Mark the image as favorite on your iPhone.
- Enter the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.
- Go to section Photos.
- Here, activate the options’Sync photos‘ Y ‘Mirror iPhone‘.
Ready. Now you can enter the Photos application of your Apple Watch and in the Favorites section you can find your COVID certificate perfectly trimmed and ready to be scanned by the staff in charge. Of course, be sure to keep this section of the Photos app clean so you can easily find your COVID passport code.
