Access your vehicle controls and climate from the Apple Shortcuts app.
Editor's note: With official support for Apple Shortcuts, you can now control many aspects of your Tesla with Siri.
Simply say 'Hey, Siri' and one of the pre-created Tesla phrases, such as 'Lock Tesla,' to control your vehicle with your voice.
You can also create your own shortcuts to perform various actions, such as setting your vehicle to your desired temperature and starting the climate system. To set up your own shortcuts, open the Apple Shortcuts app.
In addition to Siri support, you can also set up automations for your vehicle, such as turning on your Tesla's climate system automatically at a specific time every day.
Cusutomations need to be set up through the Shortcuts app by navigating to the 'Automation' tab and clicking the plus sign at the top corner of the screen.
