Here are the first screenshots of the CarKey, the function of iOS 14 to use the iPhone as the key for the car

CarKey will transform the iPhone and the Apple Watch in your car key enabled to open with NFC. In the details of today, we understand that everything will be run through the existing Wallet application.

In the Wallet we are now accustomed to store whatever you usually carry in your wallet, and then in the pocket of the pants. In addition to credit cards, event tickets and transport or hotel bookings, Wallet will also add the virtual key to unlock their car and start the engine.

This system will require authentication with Face ID, but has been refined to work even with the battery completely discharged and without authentication, as well as the cards Transit Express.

The ones you see above are the first screenshots to emerge from the collaboration with BMW. The card will be in the Wallet will contain an image of our car, and various details. We can then decide whether to use the digital key only to unlock doors or even start the engine.

The digital key can be shared via Messaging to another person with iPhone. Such sharing may be permanent (especially useful with family members), or limited time.

CarKey is not active in the iOS 13.4, which is the one that will probably be the last firmware before the presentation of iOS 14. It follows that it is easier to aspettarsela for June.
