Apple iPhone with BMW car key

iOS 16.4 could ditch NFC Car Key support for older iPhones and Apple Watches

Posted on

Apple’s latest iOS 16.4 beta appears to suggest that Apple is getting ready to remove NFC support from its Car Key technology.

Apple Car Key allows people to lock, unlock, and start their compatible cars using nothing more than an iPhone or an Apple Watch. But some of those devices will lose support for the feature in the future if code found in iOS 16.4 beta 3 is any indication.
