I have a year-old Model X with EAP & FSD.

I stumbled upon a video for autopark; didn't know autopark existed existed. How do I make it parallel or perpendicular park itself? I can't find out how to initiate that.

You have to pull past the spot and wait for "P" box to appear before putting it into reverse. Then you get the option to commit to autopark on the screen. There is more documentation in the manual available on the main screen.

Hahaha. Don’t you just love discovering your car has features that other companies would have you pay a lot extra for ?
I had similar experience the other day when I realized for example the car had adaptive headlights. I had been wondering when my driveway had started being lid up so well. Then randomly saw the headlights adapting one day.

OK, so I was confused, too. I just got AP and FSD and I read the manual (I thought) but couldn’t find any “Autopark” slider or options in the menus. So, it’s just “there” and a virtual button appears in appropriate situations?

Correct. Give parallel parking a try. Just pull up past an open spot, I suggest you select a big opening the first time. You will see a rectangle with "P" in it appear. Put it in reverse. Then confirm the autopark and let the car do its thing. Be ready to take over, but do not touch anything until it is done.
