BMW has announced an updated version of its mobile car key technology called Digital Key Plus. It promises to allow iPhone owners to unlock certain BMW cars without having to take out their phones. The feature is based on ultra-wideband (UWB) that has been included in Apple’s flagship iPhones since the iPhone 11 thanks to the U1 chip. Digital Key Plus will debut on the all-electric BMW iX that will be launched later this year in Europe and next year in the United States.
The big advantage of the Digital Key Plus, according to BMW, is that it uses UWB, so it works with an iPhone that’s still in your pocket or purse. In contrast, the current digital key system used by Apple and BMW is based on NFC, so you have to hold an iPhone (or Apple Watch) near the car tag to unlock it. BMW also emphasizes the security of its new UWB approach, noting that it is resistant to relay attacks that might attempt to block or intercept its signal and offers “the highest possible security”.
