I am hoping to be proved wrong, but having to apply two separate updates totalling several hours just for a few tweaks to the infotainment system and a bit more use made of the ID light sounds pretty underwhelming to me. Or am I missing something?

That’s all the release notes mention.

There may be some bug fixes, performance is definitely better - startup time plus general responsiveness.

Yes you are missing a lot
This release is actually about performance, fixes and infrastructure enhancements
And most importantly, it shows the correct alloys you bought on the picture ;)

Thanks for the replies. I have seen others mention improved performance of the infotainment system and that will be welcome if correct.
Does anyone have any info. on what the 'infrastructure enhancements' are?
Or the bugs that are fixed? Have they changed the on/off button for climate control to be consistent with the rest of the system for example?
( I haven't had the 2.3 update but the 'Internet radio unavailable' message seems to have stopped appearing every day by the way - pleased about that!)
I have some experience in software development and updates that take several hours to apply typically are only required for major changes which 2.3 doesn't really seem to entail. I'll be honest it does make me worry a little about the quality of the underlying software design and efficiency.

It's very clear now to me whether the climate is on or off - when you turn it off the button turns white (unlike anything else on the screen at the the time, so it stands out) and the temperatures at the bottom say OFF (in a larger and bolder text than I remember)

There is no log of bug fixes that I'm aware of, I've read that the location-based charging is unchanged but I don't use it anyway.

Has anyone had the 2.3 update in the UK yet and does it work ok. Still waiting for mine.

Yes I have, and yes it does.

It’s only been pushed to those who volunteered to receive it early, still not generally available.

Startup and responsiveness are improved, you can toggle easily between the 2 pages of widgets and the 2 pages of icons, some of the pages/screens have been updated, and the ID. Light does a few new things.

I am curious, I only got my ID3 a couple of months ago and I have had the car say there is an update a couple of times but I have been unable to download it due to strangely needing to use the car when it comes up and says to leave the car until it is complete so I have had to ignore it. Is there a way of doing the update manually without waiting for it to pop up on the screen?

Did you check System Information and Updates to see if it's lurking there?
