If your keys go missing you can turn off your keys remotely'.
Speaking to iMore, developer duo Mysk who discovered the problem and to whom Apple has attributed the new iOS 14 feature, said they were "thrilled" to have made a difference.
This feature gives the facility to use your phone as a key to your auto.
The Digital Key will be compatible with nearly the entire BMW lineup from 1 to 8 Series, including also the M5, the M8 and the Z4 Roadster.
The technology is built into the UWB U1 chip, which Apple says will at some point allow all automakers to safely detect the phone's position and proximity, even if it's at the bottom of your bag.
Apple CarKey will be first seen on the recently facelifted 5 Series sedan and, in the near future, we expect this technology to be available in more BMW cars and SUVs sold globally. These options can be accessed from inside the vehicle or through Apple Wallet. The tech giant says it won't get data on when you access your auto or who you share your vehicle keys with either. Apple could be expected for later this year iPhone 12 models attach a new power supply for faster charging.

CarKey also lets an owner share the digital key with other people through a message. Apple has also tied up with BMW and Ford to support the EV routing feature and will add more brands in the near future.
The manufacturer says it will enable customers to "just tap to unlock and easily get going by placing the iPhone in the smartphone tray and pushing the start button".
