iOS 16 Makes It Easier to Track Packages With Built-In Order Tracking for Apple Pay Purchases

iOS 16 makes it easier for users to track orders and parcels with a built-in tracker within the Wallet app for Apple Pay transactions.

ios 16 wallet order tracking
Previously, users would need to download a third-party app from the App Store to track their parcels. With ‌iOS 16‌, Apple is building a tracker directly within the Wallet app for ‌Apple Pay‌ transactions. The new integration with Wallet will let merchants and couriers provide users with precise tracking information and notification.

Apple says Apple Wallet order tracking will be available from millions of merchants through e-commerce platforms, starting with Shopify and expanding over time.

I’d love it if Amazon got onboard with this, wishful thinking?

Yeah, while I think this is neat for stuff thats bought through apple pay, if i cant put in my own packages, then this is useless.

The only thing it'll do is fracture the screen(s) i have to look at, currently i only look at parcel for a quick glance of all my packages, if i have to look between wallet and parcel, then i'll pick parcel, no matter how useful apple positions wallet for this. Unless wallet could take all features from parcel (including their extensive carrier integrations and recognitions), i'll keep using parcel.

Right now, "Parcel" is the best package tracker. Once you set up email forwarding of delivery notification emails to your Parcel email address the app works automatically with no manual entry needed.

The Mac truly needs a Wallet app. I guess I could see the reasoning for excluding it before TouchID/Secure Enclave -- but now that they have good biometrics I can't see a good reason not to have Wallet on Macs.
Totally agree, and same with the iPad. It would be so much nicer to see all that data on the larger screens, especially when they add more features to it every year. Plus, it‘s our data - I wish they would let us view it on our own (Apple) devices.

Cool, but I know I won’t use it unless I can use it on my iPad/Mac. That’s where I do almost all of my online shopping and package tracking currently.

This is a great feature. Would come in very handy and do not have to rely on third party apps.
