Maybe someone else on 3669 can confirm?
I have a new theory...
Audi are working on adding OTA updates to the software. They won't update any of us 2021 owners to new software until it's available because they don't want to tie up the workshops twice for software updates. They claim the newer version isn't compatible with the older vehicle, but as the hardware versions are the same, I find that hard to believe. Sounds like BS to me to stall us.

Possibly, the ‘Audi Connect Safety and Service standard item is described on the UK configurator as:
“Audi connect emergency call & service makes sure you feel safe on every trip – no matter what happens or where the journey takes you. For instance, in the event of a serious accident, an automatic emergency call is triggered to the Audi Emergency Call Centre. Vehicle information is transmitted automatically to help ensure that assistance is provided as quickly as possible. In the event of a vehicle breakdown or a minor accident, the online roadside assistance and the Audi incident assistance provide help right away.
With online system updates, the vehicle can receive software updates via a wireless over the air interface.
The functions work only within system limits and are partly dependent on the availability of third-party services. Audi assumes no liability with regard to the correctness of this data.
The services are provided via a SIM card installed in the vehicle. The costs of calls and data connections are included in the price of the services. The services provided by Audi are available only within the range of the mobile phone network of the mobile phone provider chosen by Audi. The Audi connect services online roadside assistance, Audi incident assistance and Audi service request are provided for up to 10 years after new vehicle delivery.

In the event of changes ordered by the authorities or state or other legally required changes, or if any necessary telecommunications systems and services are discontinued (e.g. if our mobile services provider ends or restricts mobile services that are used in your vehicle), the replacement of and the cost of replacing any devices necessary as a result of such a change or discontinuation are not the responsibility of Audi.

Further disruption to the services may occur due to force majeure or as a result of technical and other measures carried out on the systems of Audi, suppliers or network operators to ensure their proper function (e.g. maintenance, repairs, system-related software updates, extensions). Audi will make every reasonable effort to end such disruption as quickly as possible or to work towards a resolution.

The package also includes the automatic provision of updates for the software used in the vehicle, provided that these can be made available online. If this service is booked, Audi reserves the right to scan the information stored in the vehicle and to determine which software updates the vehicle requires. If an update is available, Audi will upload the required information into the vehicle to prepare for installation. Audi will then inform the user of the content of the relevant update and ask them to consent to the installation. The relevant update is not installed until the user has given their consent.” (my emphasis)

So, over-the-air updates are possible using the vehicle’s own cellular network connectivity, but there is no mention of the availability and content of those updates. The current opinion is that the scope of any such updates will be limited to navigation and infotainment services rather than the full vehicle system software.

Another theory is that Audi may make software updates part of the first service, which is two years after initial registration. It’s unlikely they will want to recall vehicles for updates more often than strictly necessary. The id.3 update version 2.4 is a multi-hour process which also included a 12 volt battery replacement.

It will be interesting to see what software version model year 2023 vehicles arrive with, 3669 or something newer?

Hi electron
Yes - I picked up my q4 here I the uk about 10 days ago - and it’s currently all the same versions that you list.

All the same ”features” such as startup splash screen, charge scheduling not available etc that others have found.
Not causing too much inconvenience to date - as I just use the app for my wall box (Andersen konnect) for charge scheduling - but fingers crossed for the update

I actually thought I’d found a way to do charge scheduling with the MyAudi app - as on v4.4 of the iOS app, if you click and hold the icon, you get a pop up menu which includes an option for “charge vehicle with timer”
.. but I wouldn’t particularly recommend clicking on it - because I just got loads of http errors for my pains -and now I also get various errors whenever I run MyAudi such as “Audi connect services could not be updated“ - so I must have upset it!

d’oh

I tried holding the app icon and got the pop up, but selecting charge with timer just opened the charging schedule page where there is no option for charging with timer, so it goes in circles! Rubbish app and software, my 2017 BMW i3 had a very good app that did it all!

Unfortunately not. If it was, that would be classed as a miracle.
