There are some impressive new updates as part of Tesla’s long-anticipated OS 6.0 update shown in the above screenshots sent to us by a tipster. Maps/Navigation and Calendar app are probably the most important but the big surprise as you can see in slide 1 above is that Tesla will allow users to start and drive the Model S from the iPhone without a key. It appears that an Android version via app update will follow in the coming month.

While the update is big, it does not include some of the bigger items that iPhone-using CEO Elon Musk has promised for the platform including Android Virtual Machine, Voice controlled song selection, additional suspension control and more.

Thanks Michael!
