Being able to remotely open your automobile abusing your smartphone isn’t brand-new. We’ve seen this tech used by carmakers such as Hyundai, but now it looks like Apple is interested in creating something of their own, at least that’s what’s being indicated at in the recent release of iOS 13.4 beta.
According to the beta, there s a comment made to a “CarKey” API that would allow users to use their iPhones or Apple Watches to fasten, open, or even start a auto, as long as the car is NFC compatible. It too does not appear that it will be necessary to use Face ID to authenticate the subscribers, which might seem perilous, but in reality it means that you can still use the feature to open your auto even if your phone or watch is out of battery.
Also, what’s interesting about this discovery is that it appears that there is mention of potentially allowing users to share their “keys” with others, meaning that if you’re out of town and someone needs to borrow your auto, you can send them the virtual keys. We expect more detailed information about this feature in the future formerly it is released.
In the meantime, it’s not startling that such a feature should exist. Previously, Apple had filed for a patent in which it suggested that the use of Ultra Wideband technology could also be another possible space to turn iPhones into car keys.
