CarKey: Findings some of the specifications of the digital key based on NFC

Among the rumors that Apple is working on the feature “CarKey” for the iPhone, the Car Connectivity Consortium today announced that the specific Digital Key Release 2.0 based on NFC has been released to its members, which includes Apple.

The specification allows mobile devices to store, authenticate and share digital keys to vehicles with security and privacy end-to-end. The specifications include support for a low-power mode, which means that a vehicle can still be unlocked with a smartphone that has recently drained the battery.

Going forward, the consortium is developing a specific Digital Key 3.0 based on Bluetooth and Ultra-Wideband to enable passive access and no key to the position. This would allow us to leave our iPhone in the pocket or in the backpack during the logon or the boot of the vehicle. IPhone models 11 are equipped with a chip U1 designed by Apple, with support, Ultra-Wideband, then the Wing companies may choose to offer this feature.

It was recently discovered that Apple is developing a new feature “CarKey” that will allow an iPhone or Apple Watch to unlock, lock and start the vehicle compatible with NFC. Just as credit cards and boarding cards, users will be able to add a digital key to the app Wallet, eliminating the need to use a car key or physical key fob.

CarKey will allow users to get closer to the own vehicle, to keep your iPhone or Apple Watch near an NFC reader in the vehicle, log in with Face ID and to automatically unlock the vehicle.

Last month, there were screens of what seems to be the interface CarKey on Twitter, giving us our first look at the upcoming features.

As expected, a key to the car, the digital appears as a card in the app Wallet. By tapping on the tab displays information such as the car model, the manufacturer, a toggle switch to the Express mode and an option to share a key with other users. When you share a key of the car, the main user may provide three other levels of access, including the ability to unlock just the trunk, unlock the vehicle or unlock the vehicle and drive it.

On the basis of the code iOS 14 leaked, it seems that BMW may be among the first car manufacturers to support the function CarKey. It is not clear when Apple plans to announce the feature, but it is expected that you will be presented with the iOS 14 the next month.
