My name is truncated on the Wallet Pass. How can I fix it?

When you download a Wallet Pass on your Mac you can preview your pass in the Wallet Simulator App. The preview on the Mac might look different than on a real iPhone. For example if you have a long name, the name will be trimmed on a simulator by shortening the name and adding three dots at the end of the truncated name. This behaviour ensures that the name doesn’t overlap with the profile image.

iPhones automatically render the Wallet Pass in the best way possible.

A real iPhone handles the rendering of the Wallet Pass differently. Instead of truncating the name, the first and the last name will be displayed in separate lines. If the name is still too long the iPhone uses a smaller fonts. The following screenshot illustrates the difference on the simulator and on real device.
