Tesla may soon add support for Apple Music, according to references in a Tesla software update found by Twitter user @greentheonly (via Tesla Nord).
Spotify has been the main way to listen to music using Tesla’s infotainment system for some time, without support for other music streaming services such as Apple Music, Tidal or Amazon Music. Tesla first announced support for other music streaming services, including Tidal in particular, during its presentation of Battery Day earlier this year.
In addition to references to Tidal in the latest software update 2020.48.26, there appear to be options for Apple Music and Amazon Music.
they have been working on it for quite some time

Although Tesla has been reported to be working with Apple Music support for some time, the option hidden in the software update does not work yet. Despite this, Tidal is expected to be the first additional music streaming service to come to Teslas.
So far, the only carmaker that has directly integrated Apple Music into the infotainment system has been Porsche for its all-electric Taycan model.
