When Tesla started pushing its 8.1 software update to its fleet this week, it was really light on UI improvements and instead focused almost entirely on Autopilot 2.0 updates.

Several of the changes that CEO Elon Musk previously associated with the upcoming 8.1 update have been pushed another ~6 weeks.

We are talking about the expected internet browser update, Linux kernel update, and several bug fixes – especially having to do with Tesla’s media app.

Most of those changes were first expected in December and Musk linked them to the 8.1 updates, which had been delayed until this week and didn’t contain any of the changes.

Musk said on Twitter today that the new deadline is “probably 6 weeks or so”:

The good news is that it will apparently come with “lots of underlying changes” and “a few nice features”.

What do you think those could be? The long-awaited app mirroring?  Let us know in the comment section below.
