What is Apple CarKey and how does it work? On Monday, the tech company announced at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC, a new feature that uses the smartphone to unlock and start a vehicle. BMW confirmed that the feature will be available in iOS 13.6 and watchOS 6.2.8. It's part of iOS 14 and will allow users to unlock their auto via their iPhone, provided the vehicle has the correct compatibility.
To unlock their vehicle, users will have to hold their Apple NFC-equipped device, such as an iPhone or Apple Watch, next to the vehicle's NFC reader panel, which is typically located in the door handle.
The function also allows the key to be shared with up to five other users via BMW's iPhone app, and there's even the option to restrict the level of access to these users. They may easily get going once they place their iPhone on the smartphone tray and then push the start button.
Once you've paired your iPhone or Apple Watch with a vehicle that supports CarKey, if you want to unlock your auto, you'll just need to hold your Apple device near an NFC reader that's in your auto (for example, in the vehicle door's handle).
The upcoming phone is likely to feature an all-new Super Retina XDR display and will be powered by the Apple A14 Bionic chip.
