App Support for Old/Obsolete Phones



Offer a legacy app for old iPhones that continues to offer basic functions.


When I bought my S in 2015 an iPhone 6 was near the top of the line and the Tesla app ran nicely for several years.  In 2021 it mysteriously stopped working – without any notification or explanation.  Service folks say ‘that tends to happen’……. Why not have a bare-bones legacy app for those of us that don’t buy new phones very often?

It may be that older equipment provides a security risk to unlocking your car, or it could even be a fault on Apple’s side, but we don’t know that.  The iPhone 6 was released in 2014, so very old technology today.

You can download and run older versions of the software and stop automatic updates. May not give full functionality, but can get most features. Had a similar problem. IT support thought they'd fixed it, but had the same problem when I tried to update.
