Tesla car owners who have car insurance with the company can now link their Tesla Insurance Cards directly to the Wallet app, making it easier to access the cards on the iPhone and Apple Watch. But that’s not all, today also marks the first real-life footage of Cyertruck, Elon Musk’s polarizing truck.
A novelty for American Tesla owners
As part of an update to the Tesla app on the App Store yesterday, the company introduced Apple Wallet support to its app. Tesla car owners can now add their insurance card on the iPhone by going to the American manufacturer’s application, tapping on their profile picture, then going to Account, Assurance, Manage Tabs and Documents.

Tesla launched its own insurance offerings in California several years ago, and began expanding to other states late last year. Tesla insurance is now available quite widely across the Atlantic, and the company said it hopes to offer it in most US states by the end of the year, as it gets approval from each region.
In states other than California, Tesla offers dynamic insurance based on real-time collection of driving data and determines premiums based on the number of hours driven and a safety score that incorporates five different factors to assess driving safety. This is particularly the case in Texas, allowing good students to pay less than usual.
And the Cybertruck finally shows up
Other information about the man who revolutionized the automobile, with the first images of the Cybertruck presented in 2019. Thanks to a presentation video published on the Cyber Truck Owners Clubwe can see a good part of the vehicle, including its giant windshield and its incredible look.
While the boss had spoken at length about the front wiper which must take care of cleaning the entire windshield, its enormous size visible in the video confirms this.
The rest of the images show the truck from all angles with previews of the wheels, tailgate and bed. Even so, the Cybertruck still looks a bit unreal with its stainless steel finish and trapezoidal shape.
