Something else I have noticed over the last couple of weeks - I have had zero PaaK failures.

Previously, I would sometimes have to grab my phone and wake it up for the car to recognize my phone and allow me to unlock the vehicle. But this has not happened recently, only a slight delay on some occasions of like a second. Most times, it is working instantaneously.

Maybe with this recent update, they have also made progress with PaaK reliability.

there's a bunch of posts on Car Key on here but the summary would be that since the car doesn't have NFC, don't hold your breath on it.
I know, I wrote most of them! The future 3.0 spec builds upon 2 and adds Bluetooth LE and UWB in the supported communication protocols. I'll still hark on Car Keys as part of my larger efforts for Ford to be more active in technology that supports customers.

Android also got the update, but with a notable difference: Apple Watch support was NOT removed.
Did FordPass ever support Android Ware OS? I assume not, but want to be sure.

They also removed Apple Watch functionality. Apparently, they’re “redeveloping the Apple Watch experience”. Not sure why they couldn’t leave the old experience functional until the new experience is ready.

How do you get this screen to update? When I go to the App Store it just shows I already have Ford Pass and it has an "Open" button there - no "update" button.

No idea! I can't wear smart devices most of the time at work.

From the App Store, you can see that app updates are either ready to install or you can confirm updates that have already been installed:
  • Pre iOS 13: There's a tab at the bottom of the screen "Updates"
  • iOS 13 and later: Click on your user icon / image in the upper right
Some good screen views here: https://ios.gadgethacks.com/how-to/...tall-app-updates-manually-now-ios-13-0199926/

If it doesn't populate in the Updates screen, try searching for "Fordpass" in the App Store. You should then see "Update"; I had to search manually as the update wasn't appearing automatically for me (impatient I know).
