Here’s A Quick Way To Get Some Passes For Passbook

Do you have the iOS 6 beta, but no passes in your Passbook application to play around with? You’re not alone; no one has them. Apple hasn’t fully enabled the app just yet, and there’s no way to track down passes to play with. That is, until today, when we noticed that lets you set up passes and install them to Passbook.

The first thing you have to do is head over to in your mobile Safari browser, select personal, then pick what kind of pass you want to create. Put in your pass details, and you’re off to the races. The browser will install the pass into Passbook automatically. Oh yeah, you also need a developer account, and the iOS 6 beta installed.
