Tesla could be working on a holiday update for its cars with tons of goodies.
It depends Teslascope, which often contains specific information about Tesla’s software updates before they happen. According to their latest scoop, Apple Music is finally coming to Tesla cars.

So far, Tesla only supported Spotify and Tidal’s streaming service, with Apple Music oddly absent. It’s true that Tesla CEO Elon Musk hasn’t always been on good terms with Apple, but the prospects of the two companies being friends again have improved since Musk’s recent meeting with the Apple CEO, Tim Cook.
If Apple Music were to finally appear in Tesla vehicles, it could mean additional benefits beyond just being a more convenient option for people who prefer Apple Music over other services. Like Tidal, Apple Music offers higher quality music than Spotify. Apple Music also supports Spatial Audio, which is a type of surround sound that makes music sound like it’s coming from all directions. Notably, Spatial Audio is coming to some Mercedes-Benz cars, so we know it can be done.
Also worth noting is the fact that we kind of know Tesla meddling with Apple Music, because the integration was seen in November in a Tesla Model S car running never-before-seen software with Apple Music on board.
There is more. New Teslascope games are also coming in the holiday update. It’s unclear if these are just regular games or Steam games (promised by Musk in July 2022), but Teslascope has some evidence that Steam integration is coming “soon” to “most” vehicles.
Other new features said to be coming for the holidays include an improved music player that can be moved around and customized, remote light show programming and myQ mechanic. Finally, a feature that will make many owners’ inner child happy is remote control (via the mobile app) of Tesla’s “emissions mode,” which is another way of saying “fart mode,” allowing owners to make fart sounds from their Teslas remotely. .
