Use iPhone as car keys

Specifically, the feature discovered in iOS 13.4 version called CarKey will allow users to use iPhone and possibly Apple Watch to lock, unlock and start the car.
Apple on 6/2 has released the first beta version of iOS 13.4 for developers. Just a few hours after appearing, 9to5Mac unexpectedly found a new feature in iOS 13.4 that will allow users to use iPhone as a car key.

Specifically, the feature discovered in this version of iOS 13.4 called CarKey will allow users to use iPhone and possibly Apple Watch to lock, unlock and start the car.


According to the files on the system, users will be able to use CarKey on cars compatible with the NFC connection standard and simply hold the device near the vehicle to use as a key.

Additionally, this feature will not need to be verified by Face ID. This also means that this feature will work even if the iPhone or Apple Watch runs out of battery.

According to 9to5Mac , the pairing process will be done through an app called Apple’s Wallet, and then you’ll need another app from the car manufacturer to set up. The user then needs to put the iPhone on the car’s NFC reader to start up and then CarKey will appear in the Wallet app.

Another interesting information is that users can share the code in CarKey with others, such as family members. Through the Wallet app, riders can also share access on their own Apple device.
