Delete expired passes 

You can find and remove expired passes or tickets from the bottom of the main interface. Plus, you can remove multiple passes from Apple Wallet at once. 

  1. Open the Wallet app → Select View X Expired Passes at the bottom of the screen.
  2. To delete a single pass, tap the pass → Choose Delete at the bottom left → Delete to confirm.

Also, if you use the same Apple ID on multiple devices, removing a pass from one device will automatically remove it from all other synced devices as well. And if your device is not synced, then you can follow the below-mentioned steps to remove it manually.

Since you cannot delete multiple passes at once on Apple Watch, just follow the same process for each additional pass. 

Now, along with passes, you may have a credit or debit card in your Apple Wallet that you want to delete. For example, maybe you’ve closed the account and no longer need the card. You can remove old cards from Apple Wallet on both iPhone and Apple Watch.
