The company will set up the digital key through the BMW iPhone App for the new cars. The control for the key can be shared with a maximum of five users. The app has features that allow the user to control or restrict the usage by young or inexperienced drivers. You can control the stereo volume, horsepower and also set speed limits through the phone.

Other than the CarKey, BMW has also modeled their new cars with features like Apple or iPhone CarPlay software.
