After many disappointed hopes, it looks like we’re getting seriously close to Apple Music support in Teslas. At a brand event in Los Angeles, a vehicle interface demo screen shows the icon for Apple’s streaming service, which upon launch asks for identification with a QR code.
Once scanned, that code will return you to the activate.apple.com page, where you’ll enter a code that’s supposed to appear on the car’s screen. It was impossible to Aaron Cash, the author of the images, to move on. Cash has created a website that allows Tesla owners to stream content from multiple platforms.
The demo screen works with modified firmware. Could it be that the December update, which traditionally includes a lot of new features, could also include support for Apple Music? These images seem to demonstrate it, but without official confirmation from Apple or Tesla, it’s better to keep your head and ears cool.
It’s already possible to connect to the Spotify and Tidal apps (and TuneIn in the US) in Teslas. Apple Music would be welcome. The integration of the platform has been in the pipeline since at least the end of 2020.
Tesla has removed all references to Apple Music from its operating system
