CarPlay in New IOS 14
In IOS 14, CarPlay will improve your relationship with your car by rethinking car keys. As you know they became big, bulky and ripe for reimagining. So we have a digital version of car keys. Now you can leave your keys at home and unlock and start your car with your iPhone. The very first car to support this will be the new 2021 BMW M5 series. It’s super easy to use. It uses NFC and just taps your car to unlock. Then place your phone on the charging pad and then push to start. But this goes beyond just one less thing you have to keep in your pocket. Digital keys have security benefits. They live in the Secure Element of your iPhone. And if it goes missing, you can turn off your keys remotely via iCloud. They are easier to share than a physical key. With each key you share, you can set options, like a restricted driving profile. Its perfect for teen drivers.
This is all we know for now. We will update as soon as we have more information about CarPlay. Stay tuned, enjoy.
