went to the sync site, and am following the sync update process. Is the whole 'request update and we will email you' thing new? don't remember this from last time i did it.
Their scripts sure are taking their sweet time generating an email with a link...

Ya I think it must be. I did my update a few months ago all I had to do was register and down loan the file on to a flash drive then confirm that I did the update.

Talked to some Ford vehicle systems engineers last week at a conference.
Sync 4 will support wireless Android Auto (and although unconfirmed, almost certainly CarPlay). Sync 3.x units will never be upgraded to do so, as the underlying OS is completely different. Although powerful enough hardware to do so, Ford isn't going to invest in it. Some Ford 2020 models will start sporting 4.x in the coming months.
So if you're looking for wireless, start looking aftermarket.

No surprise. That's always the biggest concern for me with in-dash units - that you will get stuck with whatever was out that year. They don't have much of an incentive to keep things updated from their end

Is there a changelog? Would there be a way to FORCE install sync 3.3 onto 3.0 only headunits?

Changelog is "general improvements", it works fine, I've installed on my Ecosport 2018 successfully.

I have an email from Ford Dev, saying SYNC4 is going to be released on 2021, here in Argentina we have a project to build a new pick up (the next gen Ranger mid-size) in association with VW, and that pickup will be released on 2021 (perhaps with SYNC4??) iono...
