Are we going to the latest relevant app updates?

Digital Transit Card

Did you know that the Digital Traffic Wallet application, in addition to being able to store the digital version of your CNH, can also store your car document?

This week, the Vehicle Registration and Licensing Certificate (CRLV) became available to all car owners in Brazil (in all states). Through the app, drivers can also share the document with up to five people at the same time.

Another legal point of the app is that it allows the certificate to be printed at home – even if it doesn’t make much sense, since the digital document has the same legal validity as the original paper version.

BMW Connected

As we mentioned, Apple will soon (on iOS 13.6) launch the digital car key feature; with it, iPhones and Apple Watches will be able to open and even start cars.

Apple’s first major partner will be BMW, which this week has already moved ahead and released an update to its application covering just the feature.

The BMW Digital Key for iPhone will allow you to lock and unlock your car by holding the iPhone on the door handle and starting it by placing the iPhone in the smartphone tray. The car owner can also share access with up to 5 friends. Digital Key will also be available on your Apple Watch. Digital Key configuration can be done via the BMW Connected app while the Digital Key is stored in the Apple Wallet after installation.

The Digital Key will be compatible with models 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, X5, X6, X7, X5M, X6M and Z4, manufactured after July 1, 2020. On the Apple side, compatible devices with the feature are the iPhones XR, XS or newer, in addition to the Apple Watch Series 5.

Firefox

Who also released an important update was Mozilla.

Firefox

Version 78 of Firefox, available for macOS, Windows and Linux, brings improvements to video calls (the browser does not allow screen savers or even the automatic shutdown of the screen to interrupt the transmission), accessibility adjustments and security improvements (end of support for TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols).

It is worth noting that Firefox 78 will be the last major release with support for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) and OS X 10.11 (El Capitan). If you happen to still use one of these systems, from now on you will only be able to use Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release).
