When the frunk is open, tapping the frunk button again in the app will no longer close it in the vehicle's in-app animation.
The frunk will now remain open since the vehicle doesn't have a powered frunk. The close animation in the previous app build lead to speculation that Tesla would add a powered frunk to future vehicles.
When music is being played in the vehicle, music controls will also show up in the app. With this update Tesla has redesigned the music controls slightly so that they're larger and easier to tap. The same music controls remain, which are previous song, play/pause, next song and volume up and down.
The notifications area in settings has seen a redesign as well. Under notifications Tesla now lists 'Vehicle' instead of just notifications, leading to speculation that Tesla may add notifications for additional products such as Powerwall, Solar and/or its Wi-Fi enabled Wall Connector.
The toggle buttons in the notifications area have also been redesigned to use native OS buttons intead of the previous circular blue checkboxes.
View last measured tire pressures in Controls (*)
* Vehicle software version 2022.24+ required.
Editor's note: You can now view the last known tire pressures in the Tesla app. To preserve the battery life of the wireless pressure gauges in each wheel, the tire pressure is only transmitted while the vehicle is in motion.
Tire pressure data was previously unavailable unless you were driving or recently finished driving, but you can now view the last known tire pressure in the vehicle or the app.
In 2022.24 Tesla added the last known tire pressures to the Service section of the vehicle, but in the app, it's located under Controls, where Tesla already shows you a visualization of your vehicle.
The app and car will both show you when the measurement was last taken. In the app, you can toggle the PSI view by tapping the icon in the top right corner.

You will no longer be asked to confirm if you want to open the frunk when opening it through the app. The frunk will now open immediately without confirmation.
If you have an automated trunk that has the ability to close itself, the app will no longer ask for a confirmation as well. However, if your trunk is manual, then you will still be asked whether you're sure that you want to open the trunk and that you will need to close it manually once it's open.
If you have the Safety Score available in the app, either because you have Tesla Insurance or you're trying to gain access to FSD Beta, you can now view the amount of miles driven on Autopilot.
Tapping the ( i ) icon at the top-right corner of the screen will bring up additional details about your distance driven. It will show you the total amount of miles driven and how many of those miles were driven using Autopilot.

If your vehicle has a LFP battery you will now be reminded in the app to always charge your vehicle to 100% and to fully charge at least once a week in order to keep the battery properly calibrated and operating at peak performance.

A 'Manage Drivers' button has been added to the bottom of the app to give you quick access to add or manage drivers on your Tesla account.
The add a driver feature is meant to give someone temporary or permanent access to your vehicle.
As the owner, you will be able to manage any temporary access through your Tesla app. The individual being offered access will have 24 hours to accept the invite and you will be able to cancel or revoke access at any point.
You can still manage drivers through the Security portion of the app and this new button simply makes the feature more discoverable.
The Specs & Warranty link has also been turned into a button to match the new 'Manage Drivers' button.
This feature is limited to China for the time being, but in typical Tesla fashion, it may expand to other regions in the future.
The Service section will now contains a Service Reminders. In this new section Tesla will display various items in your car that require regular maintenance, such as changing the cabin filters or rotating your tires.
Tesla also shows the recommend change interval for each item and a helpful graph that displays how much longer you have to go before the item should be serviced.

If you are not the primary account holder or have been given temporary access to a Tesla, you will now be able to remove access to the vehicle yourself.
At the bottom of the app where the Warranty and Manage Drivers buttons would normally appear, you will now have a 'Remove My Access' button that will revoke your access.

The Security section of the app has been relabeled 'Security & Drivers' to better convey the options available in that section.
Tesla has expanded the auto diagnostics feature when requesting Tesla service to additional areas.
If you report range issues through the service area of the app (under battery), Tesla's self diagnostics feature will now automatically be triggered.
The diagostics feature will search for issues that could affect the vehicle's range.
You can then continue to proceed with a service request or cancel.
