Volvo has announced that is introducing a “digital key” to unlock and start cars via Bluetooth from next year.
Yes, that’s right. From 2017, you won’t need a physical key to get in and drive off in your Volvo.
Sounds marvellous doesn’t it?
Well, yes… until it’s pouring with rain at 3am, and you find out that your iPhone’s battery is as dead as a dodo. You won’t be able to get into your Volvo without a physical key.
Furthermore, you’ll be able to use Volvo’s digital key app to remotely allow other people to get into your car.
What could possibly go wrong with that?
