Job 1 2012's (Maybe all 2012's) with SYNC (non-MFT) are still on CM5T-14D544-AC version Gen1 - V3.1.1.CI think the current state is that 'app link' is available for first generation Sync systems [ones without the touch screen] - with the implication of no further updates.
MFT equipped cars have had their systems progressively stripped of features in a quest for stability. The 3.6.2 version from 2013 seems to be the last public release [there was a 3.7.x version briefly available, but that was withdrawn]
I do not expect any changes until/unless the new QNX based system is released. That will likely have 'Car Play' [and the Android equivalent] allowing the car's display to be used as a peripheral to software running on a smart phone.
I took my 2012 Focus to the dealership on 2014-12-11, and they updated Sync to CM5T-14D544-AE. No bluetooth metadata, but the SMS feature works now. Applink would sure be nice though...Job 1 2012's (Maybe all 2012's) with SYNC (non-MFT) are still on CM5T-14D544-AC version Gen1 - V3.1.1.C
There is no AppLink, and the voice recognition quality even when I speak as neutrally as possible is total crap. I get no bluetooth metadata, and there hasn't been an update for my car since it left the factory. I just recently made an account with Ford and it says I updated it twice on June 23rd 2011 - the build date.
