I apologize for the extremely rudimentary question, but on the main page of the iPhone Tesla app, there is your car and beneath it are 3 icons: fan / frunk / lock

what is the fan for??

If it's like the Android app, it's for climate preconditioning; it's an on/off shortcut.

If you go into climate and "turn on," then go back to main screen, you'll see the fan icon changed.
thanks!But you’d still have to go into Climate to set a specific temp right?

@Audrey is correct -- it's just a quick jump to turn on the A/C (saves the extra tap). In my case the temperature is only ever on "Lo", so I use this quick action icon daily.
