These are instructions on how to enable and use Passbook in the iOS 6 beta.

In order to use the Passbook you must add a pass; otherwise, you'll only see a generic welcome screen.

Step One
Using your device, navigate to, a site that was created by Kudit to help generate passes.

Tap to select a pass you would like to generate.

Step Two
Input the details required for the pass. Note: Some pass types will let you fully customize the pass with everything from location to barcode to color.

Press the Create button once you've entered all the pass information.

Step Three
The pass will then be opened in Passbook. Press the Add button at the top right to add the pass to your Passbook.

Step Four
You can now open Passbook from the Springboard to view your passes.

try this one, I have unlocked my phone on very very fast (about 6 hours total) and cheap, now i can update to any version without having to worry that my phone will be locked ever again. Only 9.99$ for phone unlocks!!

This is very Informative blog & Many thanks for sharing. Currently there are not a lot of applications that support Passbook in iOS 6, but Apple has launched it with an impressive list of partners, including fandago, walgreens etc.

So now I do have a pass -- but how can I remove it?

Found out how: tap on the tiny 'i' icon on the right button. You'll be shown the backside where you can delete it.

It works only on beta 1.

It does work on Beta 2 but requires a slight workaround. 1. Install iUnarchive Lite from the App Store 2. Use as normal to generate a pass. When the pass is displayed onscreen, Open In "iUnarchive Lite" 3. Say "No" to unpacking the archive 4. Click the Sharing icon and select "Email file" and send it to yourself 5. Open "Mail" and view the email you just sent to yourself. 6. Click the "Card" attachment and then "Add" This also works for passes you have updated through No need to thank me. DH
