I just saw someone on facebook report that they got an update last night (July 24th) to Ford Power-Up 3.1.0. According to the person's screenshot of the ford app:

"Small changes here and there. Ongoing updates like this help you enjoy the best possible version of your F-150 Lightning truck. Enjoy".

BUT, I figured we could comment here with anything anyone has noticed! Mine didn't update overnight, so I don't really know.

WiFi is not required for PowerUps.

Do they not prioritize to wifi? Truly they push it down regardless of wifi vs cell?
We’ve never gotten a straight answer to this for the Mach E.

That's the VW method, cell or nothing. For security. Nothing has been the prize winner for 18 months now because they have so much trouble in the software part of the company. Updates are "Coming Soon!" after a visit to the dealer for the update.

Does this update resolve the recall issue with the tire pressure?

No idea, I don't have the patch yet! However, someone here: Ford Power-Up 3.10 Software Update

Claims it is a "GWM" patch, which seems to be "Gateway module", which lead me to this: "The OBD connector is fitted to the GWM. The GWM acts as a central gateway to translate messages across all 4 vehicle controller area networks (CAN), and vice versa. The GWM is the only module on this vehicle with this ability. The GWM also serves as a termination module for each of the networks to which it is connected. "

Yep - think of the GWM - Gateway as the "Router" for the truck networks.

FWIW, I JUST got a notice today that this patch installed for me. SO the rollout is apparently a couple weeks long! I thought I saw on facebook someone mentioned they got a 3.2.0 update already!

The release notes are utterly useless. Why can’t ford implement technology from this century. The app implementation leaves a lot to be desired. Same goes for sync4 implementation, JUST LET ME HIDE THE FREAKING CARDS!!
I found out here earlier: You can 'swipe down' on the cards to hide them. No idea how to get them back after though.

You can change the size of the cards, which helps a bit, but I've not found a way to get rid of them.

You can minimize them by pressing the expand screen button in the upper right.

Heh, just got a notice that I got the 3.2 update reported elsewhere, just 2 days after the 3.1 update told me it updated.

THis is the 'advanced dual phone', 'digital owners manual', 'games' (doublesum 2048 clone), and 'Payload Limit Warning' update.
