Elon Musk now says Tesla’s highly anticipated 8.1 update is coming March 28-29

11 days ago, Elon Musk said that Tesla’s highly anticipated 8.1 software update will come in “about 10 days”. Today, he updated the ETA to next “Tuesday-Wednesday”, but owners don’t have their hopes up since the update has been delayed on several occasions since last December.

What is still unclear is if the update will also bring the second generation Autopilot to feature parity with the first generation Autopilot or if it will only be UI updates for the entire fleet.

Tesla 8.1 update: Elon Musk says it’s coming in ’10 days or so’ depending on Autopilot 2.0 progress

Tesla owners without Autopilot have been somewhat neglected in term of software updates since the introduction of the second generation Autopilot. Tesla’s software team has been focused on bringing the new system to parity with the first generation Autopilot’s features.

The 8.1 update is expected to be the next big step for all Tesla owners, Autopilot or not, but it has been pushed on a few occasions. CEO Elon Musk now says that it is coming in “10 days or so”.
