How to track your orders in the Wallet app in iOS 16

To track your online orders using the Wallet app, you’ll need:

  • An iPhone running iOS 16 or later.
  • An Apple ID logged in on your device.

With iOS 16, you can review your transaction history, see and track all your packages and orders, and verify your purchases in one convenient place: your Apple Wallet. It automatically adds supported Apple Pay purchases. Here’s how order tracking in the iOS 16 Wallet app works and everything else you should know.

How to view orders in the Wallet app on iPhone

Eligible purchases from participating retailers are automatically added to Apple Wallet. These orders will appear on the Orders tab of Wallet. The Order tab lets you view your active, recently completed, and previous orders.

  1. Launch the Wallet app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the Orders button.
  3. Then, select a purchase to view more details for that order.

Order tracking also lets you view the following information:

  • Order status, including its estimated arrival time and any issues with your order
  • Order number
  • Purchase total
  • Payment status

You also can hide your orders, stop notifications for orders, or delete them altogether (in case you’ve ordered a gift to surprise your loved one!). Don’t worry; deleting an order doesn’t cancel it.

There’s also a share option that lets you share your order with another user. This can be useful when purchasing an item for someone else or needing another person to pick up your order for you.

View recent purchases in the Wallet app

Shortly after making a purchase, you’ll receive a notification on your iPhone. This lets you add your order right inside your Wallet. 

Sellers and partner merchants will push order updates like status changes, delivery tracking information, and detailed receipts for your order directly to Wallet. For pickup, merchants can send push notifications via the app telling you that your purchase is ready for pickup. They can also provide you with a pickup window/schedule and a scannable barcode you’ll need to show at the shop.

All your orders are synced through iCloud, so you can access them anytime using any of your Apple devices.
