Apple rolled out the seventh and likely final iOS 16 developer beta on Tuesday. While there were no notable additions, the beta code suggested that the company might allow you to remove the Apple Wallet app in a future update.

The code spotted by 9to5Mac and Macrumors suggested that Apple will make the Wallet app removable in iOS 16.1. Currently, users can hide the app from the home screen, but not completely remove it from their iPhones. The app stores tickets and orders, but is also responsible for storing your credit and debit cards that work with Apple Pay. So if users delete the app, Apple Pay will not work.

Apple faces antitrust charges following an investigation by the European Commission alleging that the company is blocking the iPhone’s NFC stack, preventing competitors from developing wallet and payment products that compete with Apple Pay.

In February, the company unveiled “Tap to Pay” to allow third-party apps to use the iPhone as a payment terminal. Last month the company started testing Apple Pay support for third-party browsers including Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge with iOS 16 betas. However, there is no indication that Apple will allow payment apps to use the iPhone’s NFC stack directly.

Apple also released iPadOS 16.1 beta on Tuesday, noting that it will skip the fall update of iPadOS 16.0 and immediately send a 16.1 update to all users.
