Starting from iOS 16.4, it is now possible to take your order tracking to the next level with the brand new Home Screen widgets specifically designed for tracking purchases made with Apple Pay. This update to the Wallet app brings glanceable order tracking right to the user’s Home Screen, meaning no longer having to wait to open the app in order to review important information related to your purchases.
The idea behind this new feature is to make it easier for users to view their orders as soon as they need it and avoid spending too much time inside the Wallet app. In the same way, no longer having to access external websites in order to track a package, all the information is now in one central place.
The new Wallet Order Tracking widget comes in three different sizes, depending on the amount of information you wish to view. With the widget, you can view detailed receipt and package tracking information for Apple Pay purchases, as well as information about the order status, order number, purchase total, estimated arrival time and any issues related to the order. Additionally, if a seller has opted in to the feature, you’ll be able to view the status of your payment as well.
To access the new Order Tracking widget, you just need to tap and hold the Home Screen background until the app icons start jiggling. Then, you need to hit the + (plus) icon in the top-left corner to access the widget gallery. Once you’re in there, select the Wallet app, choose the Order Tracking widget and swipe through the available size options.
The new Order Tracking wallet allows users to manage their Apple Pay purchases and orders with more efficiency. This feature is part of Apple’s effort to make its services secure and easy to use, and with that in mind, you may also want to learn more about Apple Cash Family, scheduling automatic payments with Apple Card and how to report fraud.
