How to Add a PDF to Apple Wallet

You can’t add a PDF to Apple Wallet out of the box. You need to use a third-party tool like Pass2U Wallet to convert the PDF into a PassKit Package that can be added to Apple Wallet. This isn’t as difficult as it sounds either. Pass2U does all of the hard work for you, leaving you to focus on what matters: Making it look nice.

You can also add a PDF to Apple Wallet if it isn’t stored on your iPhone by scanning the barcode or entering the numeric code that accompanies it manually. To do this, select ‘Scan the Barcode on the Card’ or ‘Enter the Barcode on the Card’ at Step 3, then follow the instructions on the screen to feed it the relevant information.

When it comes to customizing the Pass, there are a bunch of templates you can use. These have been created by other users and often look the same as what you’d expect to see if the retailer issued the Pass itself. To access these, select ‘Apply a Pass Template’ when you reach Step 3 above, then choose a template before continuing.
