Tesla software update version 2022.12.1 has just started rolling out with one of the most wanted features by Tesla owners. This update enables a Tesla owner to customize the icons of the bottom bar to his/her own desire.

The customized bottom bar icons feature in the 2022.12.1 update is limited to Tesla vehicles with horizontal screens (Model 3/Y all generations, Model S/X from the year 2021 onwards). Vertical screen Model S/X owners will have to wait for a separate update or this feature might not be deployed to them at all.

This update also includes more features like additional controls from the Tesla mobile app, child lock improvements, and an in-car web browser update (see release notes below).

Browser Update

Tesla hacker green and other Tesla owners have found out that the 2022.12.1 firmware update has a browser update as well which is not mentioned in the release notes. According to green, this update has tightened the privacy-related loopholes all around. Users can also clear browsing data now.

Improved Charge Time Estimation

Interestingly, Tesla has included the battery temperature variable when calculating the time to charge. This results in a more accurate estimate of the time remaining to charge the battery at a Tesla Supercharger or third-party fast charger.
