According to Business Wire CCC Digital Key 3.0 standard includes support for Ultra Wideband radio. This makes Car Key even better on iPhones with U1 chip.

NFC support is also present in Digital Key standard 3.0.

Car Key is supported on BMW cars, including the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, X5, X6, X7, X5M, X6M, and Z4 models manufactured after July 1, 2020. Newer model cars will be able to tap into the UWB features, but we’re still awaiting more details on the specific adoption.

Reference: Ahead of iOS 15, U1 Ultra Wideband support officially comes to the Car Key standard, Car Connectivity Consortium Publishes Digital Key Release 3.0
