Mercedes E-Class Getting Apple Car Key Support Soon

Mercedes will soon add Apple Car Key support in its latest E-class sedans as confirmed by Nicolás Álvarez (via @aaronp613).

According to Nicolas’ findings, changes to Apple’s back-end configuration files for the said feature have taken place today with references to the aforementioned automaker.

Car Key was launched by Apple couple of years back to allow automakers to add digital car key functionality to iPhone and Apple Watch using Car Key protocol, giving users the ability to lock, unlock and start their cars digitally without having to carry physical keyfobs.

Currently, the likes of BMW, BYD, Genesis, Hyundai, and Kia have added support for Car Key to some of the latest-generation cars and if today’s report is anything to go by, it seems like the German automaker Mercedes is soon going to join the club with its latest E-class sedan.

It’s important to note that Mercedes has already officially announced last month that Apple Car Key support is coming to its latest 2013 E-class vehicles. Today’s finding only confirms that the said feature’s release is imminent now, which is good news for any iPhone and Apple Watch users who either already have, or are going to buy the new E-class sedan from Mercedes.
