Schools to allow students to enter dining halls using Apple Watches and iPhones

Students at University of Alabama, Johns Hopkins University, Duke University, Temple University, University of Oklahoma and Santa Clara University will be able to use Apple Watches and iPhones to gain entrance to dining halls starting this fall, Business Insider reports

The new feature is part of the latest Apple iOS update that allows students at the schools to place their student ID into the Apple Wallet app. Students will also be able to use their watches and phones to enter other buildings on campus, such as dorms, and pay for items at campus bookstores and shops as well as vending machines. 

Apple says it plans to expand the service to more schools in the future.
