Apple will turn the iPhone 11 into a universal key for any electronics
Apple did not say anything about this during the presentation, but UWB (Ultra-Wide Band, ultra-wide band) wireless technology is implemented in the new line of iPhone 11 smartphones. This was reported by CNET.
According to the source, for this, smartphones use the U1 chip. Ultra-wideband technology will be used not only to track the same smartphones and transmit data.
It will also help you find lost smartphones, things, and the like using special tags. Another application is the automatic opening of cars and, in general, playing the role of a “key” for any electronics.
The description on the site says: “Apple’s new U1 chip uses ultra-wideband technology for spatial awareness, allowing the iPhone 11 Pro to find other devices equipped with U1. This is how to add another meaning to the iPhone and this will lead to new incredible opportunities. With U1 and iOS 13, you can just point your iPhone at someone else and AirDrop will highlight the device so you can share files faster. And this is just the beginning. ”
Probably, this feature will become known more with the release of iOS 13.
