Tonight my husband wanted to add a new iPhone to our Model 3 so he could use it to access the car and have Walk Away locking. Currently using Tesla mobile App 4.6.0 and the current Model 3 Manual and Videos (available under App’s Service section) show the app having a “Phone Key” in the phone’s menu items (like Controls, Climate…) so you can add a new phone. But there isn’t a “Phone Key” menu item on the App and so no “Phone Key -> Start” to step through and we can’t see a way to add his phone to the authenticated phone list.

Are others experiencing this issue as well?Quite an annoying problem and not sure how to resolve.

The User Interface might have changed. Now you need to push on:

"Controls"

then

"Start"
