Not related to the car software but I updated the app on my iPhone this morning and if I force close the app it now disconnects the virtual key until I open the app again, never had that before in 13 months
It's not just me then. I swore that when I got the car, as long as I'd opened the App and had it connected, I could force close it and it'd still open the car. I'm sure this was the case for a good few weeks. But then suddenly that didn't work and I had to have the app open, although could be running in the background.
I'm one of those people that out of instinct force closes anything I'm not using. This applies doubly with the Tesla app as it wakes the car up if I ever have it open.
Oh well, just another quirk to remember before I walk out and look an idiot trying to open a locked car.
This doesn't happen to me; just tried it now.
