At the World Wide Developer Conference, Apple introduced a feature that will allow you to unlock your vehicle using just your Apple iPhone.

And he believes that the humble auto key, which in new cars can take the shape of your vehicle, or even feature a display of its own, can still be further improved. They were also the first to offer wireless CarPlay and now the first to implement support for BMW Digital Key, which will be securely stored in the Apple Wallet for iPhone. These options can be accessed from inside the auto or through Apple Wallet. It's part of iOS 14 and will allow users to unlock their auto via their iPhone, provided the vehicle has the correct compatibility. They will then be able to automatically start it by placing your iPhone in a special smartphone tray and pressing the engine start button.
