    At least it looks nice.

    A widget for unlocking or turning the climate control seems a little useful, I guess. The mobile app is another area where Tesla was an early leader and then surpassed by the competition.

    Why did they remove venting and closing the pano roof? That's a step backwards.

    They needed to add seat warmers/heaters control, remote control for software updates, alerts if charging amperage changes... just for a start

    How do you know it's removed? The leak may not have shown all of the screens.

    I'll reserve judgement until the actual software comes out.

    What are people expecting from an app refresh?

    I do like the remote software update idea, that would be useful.

    Well, sort of yes. I think we got Summon and perpendicular parking plus something else didn't we? I don't remember it's been so long :).

    There's so many threads on this but there's so many things on the main screen settings that I wish we could do from the app. Like changing the schedule of charging, seat heater control, Range Mode on/off, send destination to Nav, Supercharger status, etc.

    Just updated the app, I have to agree that it is disappointing. Just a design Refresh with added support for TouchID. I wish it could include things like Trip planner on the app for instance.

    Here is the link to the iOS one:

    Same. Seems to be mainly cosmetic. I do like the widget for a quick preheat/cool down.

    It is literally the same as before.

    When progress is lacking, throw some lipstick on it and Rev the version number and call it a new release...

    I'm not looking forward to 8.1

    It's pretty hard for Elon to lose credibility with me, but between this and the Boring Co. I think he's starting to lose it. Pun intended. I'm glad I didn't pay extra for EAP and FSD.
