Common Watch app for Tesla App Problems and Troubleshooting Steps

Android, iOS, or macOS operating system users may encounter a problem where an app will display a black screen for a few seconds before crashing, with or without an error message. However, there are a few methods you can try to fix this issue:

  1. Sometimes, this problem may be caused by a temporary loading issue. To fix this, go to the recent applications menu on your phone, usually accessed by the first left button, and close the app that is experiencing the issue. Then, re-open the app.
  2. If that doesn't work, try doing a hard reboot of your iPhone, iPad, Mac or Android device by simultaneously pressing and holding the "Home" and "Power" buttons for up to 10 seconds, then release them and hold the "Power" button until the screen turns on. After that, try opening the app again.
  3. If none of the above solutions work, another option is to wait for the phone battery to drain and turn off automatically. After that, charge the phone and turn it on and try opening the app again.
  4. If the problem persists, you may need to uninstall and re-install the app. Re-installing the app will restore all settings.
  5. If the app still does not work, you can try installing older versions of the app.

Watch app for Tesla Developer Updates

Version 1.4.5 11 April 2024
- A new security measure has been added as mandated by Tesla. Each device will now need to be individually logged in. This change will require logging in again on each of your devices. Thank you for your understanding..
Version 1.4.4 22 February 2024
- When device is paired as Bluetooth key in vehicle using Tesla keycard, commands are sent directly to vehicle, even when not in Bluetooth range. This is highly recommended as commands execute much faster this way. - Owners with leased vehicles who do not have owner permissions and are unable to add Virtual Key using the official Tesla app, can now pair each of their devices as Bluetooth key directly in vehicle, and still access all commands. - Legacy vehicles - Model S and X pre-refresh will no longer require Virtual Key, as that is not supported. - Fart control and share navigation destination controls / intents temporarily removed as they are not yet supported in the Tesla Fleet API. - Updated Dutch localizations - thanks to Paul V! - Added rate limits on token refresh due to change in Tesla token expiration handling. If you experience continuously being logged out on your devices, please know that this is actively being worked on, and is due to Tesla immediately invalidating existing tokens when they are refreshed, which introduces a race between watch and phone - whichever gets to renew token first, will log the other out, until the new token is shared to the other device. Normally this syncs up within seconds. - And rest assured that I am very deep into the development of v.2.0 - it will still be a while, but it is shaping up nicely. Sorry for the drought of new features lately - everything is going into v.2.0 right now..
Version 1.4.0 19 December 2023
- ADVISORY: Tesla is currently (December 2023) rolling out breaking changes to the vehicle API. All vehicles will require this new API, which results in vehicle commands not working using the existing API. You will need to login again and re-authenticate to use this new API. - ADVISORY: Due to technical changes in the new Tesla Fleet API, parts of the logic of this app now HAS to execute on cloud infrastructure, impacting the privacy aspects of this app. Up until now, no data ever left your devices, except to go straight to Tesla - this is no longer the case, due to changes enforced by Tesla, the app is now inherently less privacy secure. By continuing to use this app, you will now have to accept that temporary access permissions will be sent to cloud infrastructure, not controlled by Tesla. No logging, analytics or inspection is performed as part of this, to keep your privacy intact. - ADVISORY: The Tesla Fleet API was not available in China at the time of publication of this build - which means command execution will soon stop working entirely in China. I will have a release as soon as possible, restoring remote command functionality. In the meantime, Bluetooth direct commands will continue to work. - Vehicle image can now be refreshed, by tapping the vehicle image from the vehicle chooser. Due to the Tesla Fleet API not exposing vehicle image data, the vehicle image will be calculated using the old heuristics, and will not always match. In that case, please open a support ticket and I will do my best to update the logic to calculate the proper image. - The Tesla Fleet API is severely rate limited - when this happens, you will see a banner in the app. For now, there is nothing I can do about that unfortunately. Feel free to file feedback with Tesla that you appreciate and find utility in 3rd party software solutions, and ask them to allow higher rate limits. - Auto-refresh is now set to 30 seconds instead of 5 seconds, in order to conserve API requests in the Tesla Fleet API. - And rest assured that I am very deep into the development of v.2.0 - it will still be a while, but it is shaping up nicely. Sorry for the drought of new features lately - everything is going into v.2.0 right now..
Version 1.3.11 04 October 2023
Minor bugfixes.
Version 1.3.10 14 August 2023
Fixed issues with Bluetooth direct vehicle connectivity and Tesla vehicle firmware 2023.26.7.
Version 1.3.8 21 June 2023
Bugfixes - Fixes Bluetooth connectivity issues related to vehicle firmware 2023.20.4 and newer. A HUGE shoutout and THANK YOU to all my translators! You guys ROCK! - and as always, if you want the app translated to your language, get in touch! All localizations are public in the support github repository..
Version 1.3.2 20 April 2023
Quick bugfix release: Removed notification when passive entry becomes unavailable, as it was continously triggering on older watch generations..
Version 1.3.0 15 February 2023
New features - Added open/close all doors control for Model X Plaid. Enhancements - Will now always try to use Bluetooth to wake the car, if within proximity. - Now shows a cloud emoji in title bar area when control commands will be processed in the cloud. - Siri will try to use Bluetooth if within range, for commands that are supported. - Migrated device local keychain to access group shared across application extensions (to allow Siri to access BLE keys). - Add logs counts to logs overview. Bugfixes - Fixed login, which was broken due to an infrastructure change at Tesla. - Fixed Unlatch doors control not opening trunks. - A HUGE shoutout and THANK YOU to all my translators! You guys ROCK! - and as always, if you want the app translated to your language, get in touch! All localizations are public in the support github repository..
Version 1.2.6 11 November 2022
New features - Added Live Activities for driving and charging sessions. These will show up when the app is opened on devices running iOS 16.1 or newer and the app has received data from the vehicle while charging or driving. Live Activities will update in the background every 15 minutes only. See note about Cloud Processing for how to improve this. - Added OPTIONAL opt-in support for Cloud Processing of Live Activities. Enable this from advanced settings, to have active Live Activities for driving and charging update much more reliably every time the state of charge changes, with the caveat that your Tesla ACCESS TOKEN is sent to the cloud. Your access token gives FULL CONTROL of your vehicle for up to 8 hours. Only enable this feature if you are comfortable with that. Almost all other 3rd party Tesla clients require this - I have made a strong point in NOT compromising your security by never letting your token leave your devices. This changes that - optionally. Reason being Live Activities really not being functional with the tools provided by Apple without cloud processing. - Now syncing allow wake and travel mode through iCloud - so toggling on one device, should toggle on all devices. - Added recommended TPMS cold temperature pressure settings to TPMS view in vehicle chooser. - Added detailed charge stats - tap the charge stats chart on main screen to see larger and summary. - Added charge stats lock screen widget. - Added navigation data to driving view. - Changed defaults for allow wake and big battery. Both are now off by default. For existing users, consider disabling allow wake, as this is no longer needed since Tesla rolled out server-side caching in their API, so they will always return the last data reported from the vehicle. This should remove all trace of vampire drain caused by this app.
Enhancements - Now using Swift Charts from Apple for 2022 OS releases for charge stats rendering. - Added debug output to show size of local database. - Changed Sentry Mode icon to always use filled-in version as it was more readable. - Added new log-level setting - defaults to only log errors, which will keep the log size down. - Added clear logs button to get rid of old large logs. - Added sample data when configuring widgets to make them show up faster. - When data is old, only some elements of main UI will now be dimmed, as not all features are unavailable or untrustworthy data. - Updated extra large widget design for charge stats. - Significantly improved speed of widgets. - Added delete all data button in the debug menu.
Bugfixes - Fixed sharing navigation destination Siri intent. - Fixed widget settings localizations for Danish. - Fixed charge stats not updating UI immediately upon receiving new stats. - A HUGE shoutout and THANK YOU to all my translators! You guys ROCK! - and as always, if you want the app translated to your language, get in touch! All localizations are public in the support github repository.
Version 1.2.5 15 September 2022
New features - Added iOS 16 Lock Screen Widgets for Status and Controls. - In driving view full screen, tap power to toggle between power and speed in center slot. - Added 'Work' to charge stats - using heuristics for now.
Enhancements - Added explicit Dismiss button to what's new modal popover, to make it more obvious how to dismiss this modal panel, as the system native feature was confusing to some users.
Bugfixes - Fixed some localization issues. - No longer dim widgets when vehicle was sleeping at time of refresh. - Performance improvements - should have improved launch speed, navigation speed etc. - A HUGE shoutout and THANK YOU to all my translators! You guys ROCK! - and as always, if you want the app translated to your language, get in touch! All localizations are public in the support github repository..
Version 1.2.4 10 July 2022
New features - Support for 4 controls per row on iOS, iPadOS, macOS - Added TPMS data collection. Data will ONLY be collected if a data update happens while driving, and vehicle has initialized TPMS sensors. - Added initial TPMS view panel. Panel only visible once TPMS data has been collected during a driving session. - Added TPMS data and raw JSON to Get Vehicle State Siri Shortcuts intent. - Added set climate keeper, camp and dog modes - accessible from the set temp panel by tapping either the internal or external temperature views on the main screen. - Added Siri action for setting climate keeper mode. Find it directly in the Shortcuts app and use for custom workflows. - Added support for cached data from the Tesla API servers. If available, app will grab last known data from Teslas servers first, then continue to wake vehicle for actual up to date data. - Use Tesla API cached data when doing background updates if not allowed to wake vehicle. - Added preliminary long-term data persistence. All captured api data will now be stored in a local database as well as synced across all iCloud connected devices. This will enable additional features in the future, as well as further reduce vehicle wakes. - Added support for capturing charge stats. Currently this only shows as a unit-less chart, but further features are planned - including configuring currencies and energy plans. - Added charge stats complication for graphic large recangular slot - Added charge stats widgets

New features - Notice: This release will be the last release supporting iOS 13 and watchOS 6.2. - Added new vehicle chooser to all Siri Actions.

Completely disable wake vehicle and background updates while Travel mode is enabled. Manually tap the refresh button to grab new data from vehicle one time. - Added help and tips in settings. - Added single vehicle mode. - Reordered settings screen. - Added ability to set charging current by tapping the charging current between the two temperature views on vehicles with 2021.36 or newer. - Added Set Charging Current Siri intent. - Added GetVehicles, GetActiveVehicle and SetActiveVehicle Siri Shortcuts for multi-vehicle shortcuts administration. - Added set seat heater Siri Intent.
