OVER-THE-AIR UPDATES

The Future of Updates

As we continue to revolutionize your driving experience, we’re determined to get the latest technology in your hands as soon as possible. Now, 2021 Mustang Mach-E and 2021 F-150 vehicles have advanced Over-the-Air Update technology for enhanced quality, capability, and improved ownership. Get started with the steps below.

Step 1

Connect to Wi-Fi*

Once you connect to your preferred private network, your vehicle will automatically reconnect whenever it’s in range. Some updates might only be able to download to your vehicle via Wi-Fi, so for the most seamless experience, keep Wi-Fi on and connected wherever available.

Step 2

Set a Recurring Schedule

While some updates complete seamlessly in the background, other updates will require your vehicle to be parked with the ignition off for a short period of time. Setting a schedule (we suggest overnight or during work hours) ensures you won’t need your vehicle during these types of updates. And don’t worry about forgetting — you'll be reminded of your schedule each time these updates are ready for installation, and you can adjust as needed.

Step 3

Download and Install

With Wi-Fi connected and a recurring schedule set, you’re good to go! Keep an eye out for any Over-the-Air Update icons that might show up on your in-vehicle screen.
