Sentry Mode now allows for even greater customization, including:
- Camera-Based Detection, which allows users to disable use of cameras to detect threats.
- Sentry Mode Clip Length, which allows users to specify the length of the clip when a potential threat is detected.
To adjust these Sentry Mode settings, tap Controls > Safety > Sentry Mode.

Manual Climate, Auto Seats
When Tesla's climate system is set to Auto, it gives you the ability to let the vehicle control the temperature of your seats as well.
However, if you changed the HVAC system to manual, then you'd lose the ability to keep your seat heaters on Auto.
With this update you now have the ability to have the climate system on manual while keeping the seat heaters set to Auto.

In regions where Teslas supports vehicle emergency services through the SOS standard, Tesla has historically provided a physical button near the vehicle's hazard light switch.
Newer vehicles replaced the physical SOS button with an on-screen-only button. Previously, the on-screen button was not displayed on vehicles that included the physical button, however with this update it's now displayed on all vehicles where Tesla supports vehicle SOS.
