The iPhone SE 2 having Apple’s CarKey features means it can be used to unlock, lock and start a car. Here is more information on Apple iPhone SE 2 features, leaks, and the possible impact of Coronavirus pandemic over the release date.
iPhone SE 2 New Feature Leaks
The recently leaked iOS 13.4.5 code contains a heading “CAR_KEY_EXPRESS_MODE_FOOTER_TOUCHID” which hints that CarKey feature for a Touch ID iPhone. While none of the new iPhone models have a Touch ID as they are supported by Face ID sensors. The upcoming iPhone SE 2 will bring back Touch ID and hence Apple CarKey support leaks are for the mid-range device only.

Apple iPhone SE 2 leaks also mention about the support for Express Transit Cards. It means that the Car key feature will work even without using the Touch ID or password in the iPhone SE 2 mobile. Express Transit Cards technology will allow the Apple iPhone SE 2 to lock or unlock cars without biometric authentication and even if the battery is drained in the device or even if it is in charging mode.
iPhone SE 2 Release Date Updates
Apple iPhone SE 2 release date was earlier set at the end of March 2020 where the Cupertino company would have a big launch event and reveal their new products. But the COVID-19 outbreak has spoiled everything and delay the release of iPhone SE 2. It is now reported that Apple will soon start the mass production of iPhone SE 2 and the device will be ready for a Summer launch, assuming the coronavirus crisis is over by then.
