Have you heard? More change is coming to the automotive category and the good news is you’ll be less likely to lose your keys.
Apple’s working on a new feature that will allow your iPhone to function as a key to your car. That’s right, a “CardKey” API is part of the updated operating system. It’ll allow iPhones and Apple Watches to unlock, lock, and start vehicles.
Apparently, pairing between your devices and your car will need to be done through the Wallet app. Your manufacturer’s app will be required to get that done as well. We’re on our way though, if not slightly delayed by the current covid-19 situation.
Although the iOs is yet to release, it looks like Apple is working with car manufacturers to get the new feature up and running. Pretty cool and something to look forward to in the near future!
