Is there an iPhone app specially for the Taycan? Something that can be used to precondition the car check battery status, etc?
Anything like Tesla’s sentry mode available?

Are we okay with that? Should we expect something better? This is my first Porsche but if the connected app is anything like BMWs, meh.
Yes, it's like the BMW Connected app, in that it provides similar features: Location of car, preconditioning, current state of charge, etc.

But it also provides some trip planning by finding DC charging stations along your route. Note: this feature only works sometimes, in the 4 destinations I tried, it failed with two, and with one dropped me at my destination with 0% charge, and no charging stations nearby.

It's not my favorite app ever... it's hard to tell the difference between text elements and buttons. (meaning: I spent days with the app before I realized it had additional features that I had overlooked because I thought the "links" were just static text.)

No, nothing like Sentry Mode. But there are "Alarm Modes". Valet Mode Alarms to alert you if the vehicle leaves a geo-fenced area, or if it exceeds a certain speed.
