According to a report by The Information, Apple is working on making the near field communication (NFC) chip in your iPhone unlock cars and doors.

The article reads, “The change to the near-field communication, or NFC, chip, which is expected to be announced next month, could pave the way for people to use iPhones for other security-sensitive interactions, from paying transit fares and opening car doors to verifying their identity in other ways.” The article also states that Apple has teamed up with Cubic, a transit card developer, for the project. Apple employees reportedly have full access to the features and are already utilizing them at their headquarters at Cupertino, California.

The company is rumored to announce the update during their upcoming WWDC next month.
