Tesla Owners Can Now Benefit from Apple Shortcuts


Tesla owners who are also Apple enthusiasts have something new to be excited about. The latest version (4.24.0) of Tesla’s mobile app for iOS now supports Apple Shortcuts. This means that Tesla owners can now easily integrate their vehicles into their everyday lives in even more convenient ways.

For those who may not be familiar, Apple Shortcuts is a free app that is pre-installed on iPhones and iPads. It allows users to set up time-saving settings for various actions, which can then be accessed with a tap or by using Siri, Apple’s digital assistant. With this latest update from Tesla, the Shortcuts app now includes a list of options specifically designed for Tesla owners.

These new shortcuts enable Tesla owners to perform a range of useful actions without the need to navigate through various menus in the Tesla app. For example, now you can easily lock and unlock your vehicle, start preconditioning the car’s temperature, enable or disable Sentry mode, open and close the charging port, boot, and bonnet, and much more. All of these actions can be executed with just a few taps or even with a voice command to Siri.

One of the great features of Shortcuts is its ability to chain several actions together into one shortcut. This means that Tesla owners can create more complex commands for their vehicles. For instance, you could create a shortcut that locks your Tesla, closes all windows, and enables Sentry mode, all with a single tap. The possibilities are endless, and it allows Tesla owners to customize their experience even further.

But the integration doesn’t stop there. The Shortcuts app also allows users to create Automations, which can trigger shortcuts based on specific conditions or events. For example, you can set up a shortcut to start preconditioning your Tesla when you leave work, or to open the charging port when you arrive home. These automations add another layer of convenience and customization to the Tesla ownership experience.

To take advantage of this new functionality, Tesla owners simply need to update their Tesla app on iOS to the latest version. Once updated, the options for Tesla shortcuts will be available within the Shortcuts app. From there, users can configure their desired shortcuts and choose how they want to access them, whether it’s through Siri, the Shortcuts app, or by adding them to their device’s Home Screen for quick access.

This latest update from Tesla brings a new level of convenience and personalization to the Tesla ownership experience. By integrating with Apple Shortcuts, Tesla is allowing its users to seamlessly incorporate their vehicles into their daily routines with ease. Whether it’s locking and unlocking their cars, adjusting climate settings, or accessing various vehicle controls, Tesla owners now have even more control at their fingertips.

So, if you’re a Tesla owner and an Apple enthusiast, make sure to update your Tesla app on iOS to the latest version and start exploring the possibilities that Apple Shortcuts can bring to your Tesla experience.
