A key subject as well as speculation at the Worldwide Developers Conference this year was both the OS X and the iOS 6. As was predicted, the end of the main presentation at this conference ended with the announcement of the next major version of the mobile OS. Part of this announcement included the announcement of the launch of Passbook. This application will let users electronically store such things as boarding passes, coupons and rewards or loyalty cards.
The beta of iOS 6 will prove to users that you can’t just go and open up the Passbook app and start using it. In order to use it, individual entries must be created and coded to use certain information. If you want to see it work, you must use a dedicated third-party website. These types of sites will let you create iOS 6 passbook passes.
For this app, you can create a variety of different types of passes. Each type of pass will have its own function based on the information contained in the pass. The website that you will go to, will let you create and manage Passbook PassKit passes that will work with the app. Follow the directions below to see how this works.
Step 1: Go to PassSource. com on your mobile device. You must make sure that the iOS6 beta has been installed on your mobile device.
Step 2: Find the template for your desired type of pass. Go ahead and fill in the required information that should be added. To enter the information, tap on the desired pass type.
Step 3: Fill in all of the relevant information. Once the information has been filled in, go to the bottom of the pass creation page and press the “Create” button. The next screen will display a functional.pkpass file. This file will work with the Passbook application.
Step 4: After you have created each type of pass that you want, the Passbook app will be working on your device.
Remember that this is currently for the beta version. It will be interesting to see the part that Passbook will play as Apple moves toward the actual release of iOS 6.
