The German manufacturer has just officialized the arrival of the Digital Key for the iPhone. A way to lock, unlock, start your car and much more. BMW will thus become the first car manufacturer to allow its customers to use the iPhone as a fully digital car key, a further sign of the integration of modern mobile technology into vehicles.
