MINI and Apple’s High-Tech Affair: Digital Car Keys Coming Soon to Your Pocket

In a move towards seamless connectivity, Apple is gearing up to introduce support for digital car keys in the Wallet app for specific MINI vehicles. This advancement will empower owners to conveniently lock, unlock, and start their MINI cars using a digital pass stored in the Wallet app on their iPhone or Apple Watch.

MINI Joins the Digital Car Key Revolution: While MINI’s parent company, BMW, pioneered the integration of digital car keys into the Wallet app in 2020, it’s now the turn of MINI vehicles to embrace this cutting-edge technology. Recent updates to Apple Pay configuration files explicitly mention MINI as one of the supported brands, signaling an imminent expansion of digital car key support.

MINI’s Next-Gen Operating System and Digital Key Plus: MINI made waves with the introduction of its next-generation MINI Operating System 9, featuring the innovative MINI Digital Key Plus. This breakthrough feature leverages Ultra Wideband technology on both iOS and Android platforms, enabling users to access their vehicles effortlessly without removing their phones from pockets or bags.

Revolutionary MINI Interaction Unit: At the heart of MINI Operating System 9 lies the groundbreaking MINI Interaction Unit, boasting the auto industry’s inaugural large circular OLED display. This 9.4-inch screen, prominently positioned in the center of the dashboard, offers a customizable and immersive experience. Users can personalize their vehicles with vibrant themes, enhancing the overall driving experience.

Debut in All-Electric MINI Models: The debut of the new MINI Interaction Unit, coupled with MINI Operating System 9 and MINI Digital Key Plus, took place in the latest all-electric MINI Cooper and MINI Countryman models. These electric vehicles are set to hit the roads next year, showcasing a fusion of cutting-edge technology and eco-friendly mobility.
