New iPhone Could Unlock And Start Your Car

Apple is testing a new feature on their new iPhone that could make your car keys a thing of the past! 

CNN.com says that the new feature will use your iPhone to unlock your car and to start the car’s engine! The article says that the new tech “key” will first start with the 2021 BMW 5 Series but Apple wants to expand it to other car models, too.

So how does it work? The article says that a driver “can tap the door handle with their iPhone to unlock” the car. And to start the car, drivers have to put their iPhone on the charging pad and press the start button. Eventually, Apple wants to allow the phone “key” to work from greater distances so that you wouldn’t even have to take your iPhone out of your pocket or purse to open the car or start it. This sounds VERY cool!

Would you give up your car keys and use your phone to open and start your car?
