iOS 13.4 incorporates CarKey, a function that allows us to use our iPhone or Apple Watch as a car key

Apple just released the first beta versions of the next major updates of your operating systems: iOS / iPadOS / tvOS 13.4, watchOS 6.2 and macOS 10.15.4. As time goes by, more details about them become known, such as that Apple will allow the universal shopping on iOS and Mac in spring, so users only have to pay once to use the app across platforms.


Another interesting novelty that the guys from 9to5Mac in iOS 13.4 code is ‘CarKey’, a function that will allow you to control various aspects of your car thanks to NFC technology.

iOS 13.4 contains references to the CarKey API

Apple Watch Car

Based on internal system files, users will be able to use ‘CarKey’ on compatible cars NFC. Both iPhones and Apple Watch will be the beneficiaries of this feature, giving users the ability to unlock their car just by bringing the smartphone or smart watch.

“To use CarKey, keep the iPhone or Apple Watch close to the reader. It will work automatically, without requiring Face ID. You can change the express mode settings in Wallet.

In addition, you will not need to authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID to use the feature. ‘CarKey’ will be functional even when the device has no battery. The pairing process would be done through the Wallet application, and the vehicle manufacturer’s application would have to be installed to complete the process.

Another interesting point about ‘CarKey’ is that information may be shared with other people. This is especially useful if the car is shared with more people, such as members of a family. Apple would already be working with several manufacturers to implement the feature.

Even though there are references to the ‘CarKey’ API in iOS 13.4, this does not mean that the feature is available in the final version of the operating system, and may arrive in a future update.
