    The app will notify you. I assume you need to have Tesla app notifications enabled. Have fun.

    Be sure to go to the app store and check if there is an Tesla app update, they happen from time to time. The main page of the app has the VIN and Software release for the car at the bottom. The setting screen has the software version of the app at the bottom also.

    Two comments: for iOS be sure to have Tesla notifications set to Persistant. I’ve found this helps to see them if a car update appears in the night or when you are away from your phone.

    Also for iOS, it’s weird but checking for updates in the App Store isn’t merely going and looking. Be sure to drag down the app list a couple of times (really) so it freshly checks for new updates. I often get new updates that weren’t there on opening the App Store or on the first check.

    And one more (so, three). In the Tesla app, anytime you logout and in, check all the notification settings there. They tend to be reset to the default.

    To be clear, that tells you if you aren’t connected to wifi and an update is available. It tells you to move the car to wifi so it can download.

    If you are connected to wifi already it will automatically download and you will get a notice that includes the version number.
