If not, IOS 13.6 may be the last version of IOS 13.

Apple released the GM version of IOS 13.6 and iPad OS 13.6 today. If there are no major problems, the GM version will be the official version. IOS 13.6 adds a custom software update switch, which allows users to better control the download and installation of software updates.

From the content of the announcement,The most important function of IOS 13.6 is car key, which can replace the physical car key with iPhone or apple watch to unlock NFC enabled vehicles. At present, BMW is Apple's only partner, and there will be more car manufacturers supporting iPhone unlocking in the future.

The new system includes the carkey API, which allows users to unlock, lock and start the vehicle using the iPhone and apple watch. According to the internal files of the system, the carkey function is compatible with vehicles that support NFC. The user can unlock the iPhone only by approaching the vehicle, without facial ID verification. The whole process is similar to the iPhone NFC bus card. It also means that the iPhone can be used to unlock the vehicle when it is out of power.

It is learned that the pairing process requires the use of wallet app and the installation of the vehicle manufacturer's application to complete the settings. After pairing, the carkey car key will be in the wallet app and can be easily added to the apple watch.
