Model X

new iPhone capability

edited November -1 in Model X
Just out -- Tesla will be offering a newly updated software that will allow one to use their iPhone to unlock and start their Model S, among other things. Although it has just been announced for the Model S, I am posting in this thread as the timing in probably related to the soon to be released Model X. Part of Elon's "this car will blow your socks off" thinking.

    I can already lock and unlock my car with my iPhone. Curious to see the features.

    News mentioned other features, and did say Android app is on way

    iOS 8 is out in roughly 2 weeks. Big day for Apple. Could be a big marketing day for Tesla if they do some kind of marketing push to coincide with all of the exciting apple news and releases. Especially since they've got some sparkly new features on the way.

    Maybe even a build-your-own-x app! :)

    Apple invites App developers all the time on stage during their presentations. It would be really cool to have Tesla come out during Apple's iPhone 6 (iOS 8) launch to demonstrate some really cool new features. Two of my favourite companies on stage at the same time might convince me to get the new iPhone 6. ;)

    Sounds like it would be subject to hacking. Will it use BlueTooth?
