You Can Use the iPhone 12 as a Car Key
Apple’s CarKey feature has been a long time in the making. Earlier this year, Apple finally opened the door to let you use your iPhone as a key fob. You can use this virtual key to unlock your car, start your vehicle, and more. You even can share your virtual key with others. It’s only available on select BMW series but is expected to roll out to other models in the future.
It takes a bit to add your virtual key to your Apple Wallet. You have to have an account on the website for your vehicle manufacturer. Both your car, the Apple Wallet app must be linked to the same account. Once paired, you can store your actual key fob somewhere safe and carry your iPhone instead.
