Apple announces Wallet, adds rewards cards to Apple Pay

During its WWDC conference today, Apple announced that it has decided to change the name of its stock iOS app Passbook to Wallet. The move makes sense, considering that last fall it took over Apple Pay duties, and soon it will be getting store and reward cards.

The first retailers offering rewards cards out of the gate will be Kohls, BJ’s, and JCPenney. More retailers will be added in short order, including Dunkin’ Donuts adding its own rewards program as well.

That’s right, you can now add store and rewards cards from retailers and restaurants. Kohl’s, Walgreens, Dunkin Donuts are all apparently on board for the launch of this initiative, and it sounds like Apple is talking to a number of other high profile partners.
