How to add a card to Passbook on iPhone

New iPhone models like the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s have Apple Passbook built right in the operating software including iOS 8 and iOS 7. Passbook allows you to add reward program cards and payment cards using Apple Pay on your iPhone.

Some apps even use Passbook as a convenient way to view information at a glance. All you have to do to get started is add a few cards. One of our favorite type of Passbook card is those like American Airline, Delta and United that has the Passbook card showing on the main lock screen of the iPhone. This allows you to instantly get to the Passbook card that has your boarding pass, saving you time from having to find the app and get to your boarding pass. The following will help add a card to Passbook on your iPhone.
