On Wednesday Apple released iOS 13.6 the latest operating software for iPhones. The latest iOS updates bring cool features along with the digital car key attire that is the most awaited one. With this feature, you can create virtual keys for your vehicle and you don’t need to carry heavy keys after enabling this feature.
Apart from new features, the new update fixes bugs and offers iPhone users an upgraded experience. Now your phone will act like a car key with the compatible car. Apple showcased this feature in WWDC lat month where iPhone users can unlock a car door using the device via NFC. Apple says that the innovation utilizes the iPhone’s UWB U1 chip and that in the long run, all producers will have the option to utilize it to safely and dependably distinguish the telephone’s nearness and position. From that point, in case you’re driving a bolstered vehicle and you have to get in, you can simply tap a button on your iPhone to open the doors.
One of the best things about this feature is that you can remotely delete the digital key via iCloud if your device gets lost. Moreover, you can share your digital with someone else via iMessage in case you wish to allow someone to operate your vehicle.
