As the site says Tesla Northmentions to Apple Music had been removed as early as December 2020, after the discovery of the hacker.

However, Elon Musk recently admitted that he listened to Apple Music streaming in his Tesla… via Bluetooth. We therefore imagine that the billionaire would like to be able to do without Bluetooth and integrate Apple Music into Teslas.

The thing had been promised by the firm of Elon Musk during its last Battery Day event, with the announcement of an upcoming deployment for new online music platforms.

If Tidal and its “lossless” catalog were first mentioned, it seems that Apple Music and Amazon Music will also be there.

As illustrated by Greentheonly, the build Current Tesla software does not yet allow activation of Apple Music or Amazon Music. At first, only Tidal will actually be usable, but future system updates should unlock access to Apple and Amazon music services fairly quickly.

As indicated WCCFTech, Porsche Taycans are currently the only electric vehicles to support the Apple Music app. As we mentioned recently, Apple is nevertheless working on its own electric car. This “Apple Car” would be ready from 2024 or 2025 and could rely on revolutionary battery technology.
