Remember the patent also how that there is increasing use of e-passports, which are passports come with a chip built inside them contain information about the person, such as name, date of birth, country of origin etc. of other personal information, This means that what you are proposing Apple is not entirely new, maybe you perceive it in a new template only.

It’s an interesting idea, where we are able to store all the information about us within a single device, although one has to wonder about the security problems surrounding it. With our smart phones to hack, malware, theft, loss, etc., is it really logical to use it in something as sensitive as passports?

However, this is only an idea embodied by Apple in the patent, there is no confirmation that Apple is planning to turn it into a reality.
