Really wish Apple Wallet would automatically archive/delete all of these old boarding passes ðŸ˜ª pic.twitter.com/35oFuyCebN

I admit it, I still have my ticket to Game 5 of the 2014 World Series in my Wallet on my iPhone. But I also took a screenshot of it, in case it ever gets wiped out. The other week I went through and deleted a whole bunch of other baseball tickets and airplane boarding passes.
It’s dumb. The Wallet app should probably automatically hide time-based items when their time has passed. Creators of passes should be able to set an expiration date. And users should be able to batch-delete passes.
