Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk has recently confirmed that a new Autopilot interface will be released by the automaker as part of the upcoming Version 9 of the over-the-air software update which is scheduled for a rollout this summer.
Musk’s recent confirmation that the important Version 9 software update will unfold a new Autopilot interface, marks the latest update-related information that has been released by the high-profile Tesla CEO this week.
With the Version 9 software update coming up in August 2018, Musk has gradually been sharing some details about it over the last few days. The update will come nearly two years after the rollout of Version 8.0 update in 2016.
The Version 8.0 software update had brought a number of notable enhancements to Tesla’s Autopilot system including a user interface refresh, and some new features. It was, therefore, the most significant over-the-air software update released by Tesla at the time.

Overall, since Musk has been taking numerous suggestions from Tesla owners on the Twitter social networking platform, it is being assumed that Version 9 has been built by Tesla’s software team by filtering the suggestions and incorporating the best ideas into the upcoming update.
