Ok so here is how it is going to work. There is a small robotic arm under the front console. Once Ford enables it, pressing the frunk release button in the FordPass app will cause the robotic arm to extend and pull the manual release 2x to open the frunk. Sandy Munro demo’d it and was quite impressed by the bolts used in the arm.

Rollout has been delayed because Ford seems to be having some trouble with the robotic arm emitting a strange buzzing sound. But a recent SSM says we can expect the functionality to arrive Q2 2021.

All true. I believe it's a smaller version of he arm used on the Space Shuttle. You never know where that technology ends up. I just hope they got rid of the white covering.

update: it was “summer 2021” for the original delivery.
They have until noon 9/22 to make that target. Do not hold your breath.
So why on Earth did Ford create this behemoth of a pull latch (reminiscent of the old style hood latch releases) in order to push a button on an electrical actuator? That makes no sense at all......
They didn't. At least not terribly willingly ...
The release doesn't push a button. It pulls a cable. Federal regulations mandate both a primary and secondary hood latch. One pull of the handle to release each latch. Opening the frunk will also cancel a remote start. A carryover from the ICE safety measure. It would be great if Ford could get that fixed, too.
This. It's been discussed ad nauseam here.

Hi - I have a select, with ios app version 3.30.0 -no frunk button. Do you know if this applies to Selects as well or is there something else happening here?

It should apply to all trim levels once it's generally available.

I don't have the frunk button in my FordPass, and my vehicle is a Premium. It wouldn't matter anyway, since the vehicle still requires an update to make it work.
