    For those who may not have noticed, there is a update to the Tesla app available on the iTunes Store.

    My guess is API changes coming in 8.0. It's common to release backwards compatible clients ahead of a backend change.

    Pity, I was hoping a much bigger update to the app would come along with v8 and give us an updated UI and new capabilities.

    It's possible that there's a bunch of new stuff that won't show up until the car has 8.0.

    OK, I'd put the chances of this actually being true at around 1%, but we can hope!

    Vague change log notes, I would assume it's in anticipation of 8.0 more than anything else.

    If 8.0 or 8.1 has navigation updates, maybe the new app will be able to push destinations from the phone to the new nav system

    Right now, I have to make fake appointments to get a location from the phone to the car, which is silly and a bit awkward.

    There is a referral button on the main screen of the Ap. Not sure if this was added in this update or prior but I only noticed It recently.

    I noticed the Climate pane now displays my interior temperature. It wasn't doing that before, unless I actually turned on the climate control.

    My temp didn't show up with the new update. In the past, it wasn't visible unless the app has interrogated the car for information (like after turning on the A/C, as you mentioned). And then the temp seems to linger for a while, but eventually will not show again until you interact with the A/C again.

    The Summon button seems to be missing in the new update, is anyone else experiencing this issue?

    It's still there for me. I think you have to be closer than a certain distance from the car.

    I have not done it for a while but I'm pretty sure you can create a destination to navigate to by pressing and momentarily holding your finer on the destination location on the touchscreen map.
