Following the release of iOS 6 on Wednesday, Passbook-enabled apps have started trickling into the App Store, MacRumors reports. A small selection of apps from Major League Baseball, Ticketmaster, Fandango, Lufthansa and Walgreens are now available that grant users access to special events, flight tickets and reward programs. Apple (AAPL) announced Passbook at this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference as an iOS 6 feature that allows users to store documents such as boarding passes, admission tickets, coupons and loyalty cards that can then be scanned for use at select retailers.
