Could the iPhone soon replace your auto keys?

Files app

Recently, Apple would already be working with various automotive companies to use CarKey.

Apple today planted the first beta versions of the next iOS and iPadOS 13.4 updates for developers, a week after the release of iOS 13.3.1 with a new lever to turn off the U1 chip.

As we have heard, iOS 13.4 contains references to an API called "CarKey".

The new "CarKey" feature will allow users' iPhones and Apple Watches to operate in place of a traditional auto key on vehicles that use near-field communication (NFC) technology, according to 9to5Mac, a website devoted to Apple news.

Face ID authentication is said to not be needed, which will allow the CarKay to work even when the iPhone or Apple Watch are out of battery power.

Some text found in the API reveals that the function will be contained within the existing Wallet app, and similarly to how Express Transit Cards now operate, won't need to use Face ID to verify the CarKey's interaction after the initial pairing. From there, you can add it to your Apple Watch. "You can change express mode settings in Wallet". For example, Hyundai's digital key app is only available for Android and the app only works with the 2020 Sonata.

"According to the system's internal files, users will be able to use CarKey in NFC-compatible cars, as they only need to hold the device near the vehicle to use it as a key". So, your spouse or other family members can use your auto without having to constantly hand over the keys back and forth. "Drivers can invite them also through the Wallet app to have access to the key on their own Apple devices".
