Hyundai Motor Group - which includes Kia cars - has announced a plan to roll out a digital key later this year. In simple terms, it means you'll be able to use your smartphone, and an app, to unlock and start your Kia.

Once live, car owners will be able to download an app onto a smartphone, which then lets them download this Digital Key. What's more, you'll be able to share this Digital Key with up to four other authorised people, so that they can gain access to your car.

(AP Photo/Lee Jin-man, File) One question it does raise is for iPhone users. Currently, Apple is quite restrictive over the use of its iPhone NFC antennas, however, with the hardware currently being used for access to some hotel rooms and university campuses, as well as unlocking August smart locks, using it for Kia's Digital Key technology isn't impossible.
