Tesla adds the ability to unlock car doors from the app [video]

Tesla adds the ability to unlock car doors from the app

You can now remotely unlock the driver's door on the Model 3 and Model Y

Tesla has updated its iOS app to version 4.14, and with it comes two new features.

The first are widgets for the iOS lock screen. There are two widgets to choose from, both of which display the vehicle’s battery level. There’s a small circular widget that populates based on the vehicle’s state of charge, and there’s a larger widget that includes the vehicle’s name and a numeric display of the vehicle’s battery level, either in percent or miles/km, depending on how your app has it set.

Another feature is the ability to unlock the driver’s side door from the app.

The door handles on the Model 3 and Model Y are not powered and with the right mix of water and cold weather, the handle can sometimes freeze to the door frame.

The ability to unlock the door from the app means that the door handle is not used at all and the door is electronically unlocked, causing it to open just enough for you to grab the side of the door to open it fully.

Unlock the door in action

The door unlock feature is only available on the Model 3 and Model Y and requires your vehicle to be turned on update 2022.36 or later, which currently accounts for about 350% of Tesla’s fleet.

To unlock the doors, you’ll need to add a new “Unlatch Door” icon to the Quick Actions section of the Tesla app that appears below the vehicle visualization.

Unfortunately, Tesla has not added the ability to unlock the doors in any other areas of the app, such as the Climate or Controls section, but hopefully that will come in a future update.

Currently version 4.14 of the app is only available for iOS, but we expect it to be available on the Google Play Store soon.

FSD Beta 10.69.3 should be released next week

This was announced on Twitter by Tesla CEO Elon Musk Full beta with self-driving will be out “next week” and may remove geofencing in Toronto. Before September 30th AI day 2Musk said that 10.69.3 will be released shortly after the event.

With version 10.69.3, owners can expect a a wide range of improvements, including better movement in smaller gaps, turn signal improvements and matching speed to traffic. The Tesla owner’s Twitter account in Silicon Valley mentioned the observation to Musk, stating that it “goes slow sometimes.”

Tesla Silicon Valley owners also asked Musk when FSD Beta 10.69.3 is coming to Twitter. “Next week,” Musk replies.

The automaker has released the FSD Beta version 10.69.2.3 just last week. The update was a minor bugfix release and did not include any major changes.

Tesla FSD Beta 10.69 was originally supposed to be FSD Beta 10.13, but Tesla decided to rename it for humor since there were big changes in this release and the beta worked much better. However, the name change has led to some confusion.

After releasing the 10.69 beta, Tesla released minor revisions to 10.69 with versions 10.69.1 and 10.69.2, leading to believe that 10.69.3 will also be a minor release.

However, beta 10.69.3 will be a major beta release with many improvements.

We are guessing that version 10.69.3 will be built 2022.28which he introduced alternative directionsthe ability to minimize Tesla theater and suggested destinations.

However, please update 2022.36 is now in a significant part of the fleet, so Tesla may have started development outside of this branch or merged their features before releasing FSD Beta 10.69.3.

If you are met the conditions to be added to the Beta program but have not yet received an update, our recommendation would be to not update to the previous version 2022.28 just in case the next beta is based on this branch.

With version 10.69.3 a week away Elon time, we expect Tesla to start rolling it out internally to employees next weekend, the first few thousand beta testers hopefully a few days later, and then a wide release soon after that.

Euro NCAP is investigating Tesla over potentially modified test software

Tesla Hacker Greentheonly recently revealed Tesla added the names of various testing agencies to some of its development software, prompting an investigation by Euro NCAP, the European government-backed organization that thoroughly tests vehicle safety.

Green revealed that Tesla recently added ANCAP, the Australian testing agency, to its software. And VISTA, which is the Chinese test site, Euro NCAP and Korea NCAP are already mentioned in the vehicle code. The addition of ANCAP to the software coincides with Tesla’s launch of Model Y sales in Australia.

Although Green was able to find these references in Tesla’s software, he couldn’t determine what they were used for because they run on Tesla’s FSD hardware, which has limited access.

There is no evidence of any attempt at cheating

After Green’s tweet, Euro NCAP took a closer look at Tesla’s software and their test results and found no evidence that Tesla attempted to cheat in any of the agency’s tests.

“The integrity of its star scheme is of the utmost importance to Euro NCAP and we will continue to do everything we can to ensure that the rating reflects the safety consumers can expect from their vehicles,” said Aled Williams, Euro NCAP’s program director. CNN Business. “Euro NCAP’s investigations have so far revealed no evidence of attempted ‘cheating’ tests by Tesla.”

Euro NCAP testing

Tesla uses geofencing to enable and disable its Full Self-Driving software. Namely, the company does it in Toronto, and the owners expect Tesla to do it remove the geofence in version 10.69.3.

“It is possible that the GPS location is used to identify that the car is on a particular test track,” Williams added. “That’s one of the opportunities we gave Tesla and they absolutely deny it was done.”

Others have speculated that adding the agencies’ names to the code would make it likely that Tesla will hold data on these test sites. Tesla could collect test data so they can make improvements to the hardware and software of their fleet.

It’s important to note that none of Tesla’s safety crash tests performed by these agencies were affected by the vehicle’s software because all of the vehicle’s sensors are covered before the crash tests are performed.

The only testing that relies on the vehicle’s software is the software-assisted tests such as automatic emergency braking, pedestrian avoidance, lane departure, etc.

Tesla would be putting too much at risk by trying to cheat during any of these tests. Their vehicles are already some of the safest vehicles on the road, and they continue to improve their safety by improving seat belt tensioning systems and improvement of hazard lights on the vehicle.
