The Rivian App offers extra convenience with the R1T by letting you automatically open the tailgate, open and close the frunk, gear tunnel doors and the powered tonneau cover.
  • "Our front trunk is a clean, lockable space large enough to fit a half-dozen full grocery bags or two full-sized coolers. It opens and closes automatically with the app, fob, in-vehicle controls or an exterior button under the lightbar."
  • "If the R1T had a mud room, it would be the Gear Tunnel. At 65'' long, it’s where you throw slushy snowboards and sandy beach blankets to keep the mess out of the cab. The doors, which also serve as a seat or a step for accessing the roof, can be opened automatically using the app, in-vehicle controls or buttons on the bed rail."
  • "The R1T tailgate opens automatically and can be controlled through the app, fob, in-vehicle controls or a button on the bed rail."
  • "Two lockable tonneau cover options turn the entire bed into an extra 29 cubic feet of secure, weatherproof storage space. Our powered cover retracts using the app, in-vehicle controls or a button on the bed rail. Our manual cover is easily removed in four lightweight panels that can be stored in the Gear Tunnel."
These App features were mentioned in a product update Rivian sent out today.

If you was truly old fashioned you would be either cracking or pushing a button on the floor to start your engines.
Actually, since I used to build and drive demolition derby cars, I had one toggle switch to turn the ignition on/off and a big push button to engage the starter. They were mounted to a steel plate bolted to the floor or the dash. The gear shift was a simple rod going through a hole in the floor to the tranny. Very simple and reliable. Here is an example, did not have the final battery box installed yet, this was in the "testing and development phase".

Still no app in iPhone App Store. Seems hard to sell one of the sellable R1Ts without the app.

An App Id has been leaked in the Rivian web source, so unless that's a placeholder (seems unlikely) then Apple has already got the app in their system. It's possible they're waiting for review, or even more likely that it's been reviewed and Rivian is withholding the publishing until deliveries actually start.
