Why isn't my car telling me to change the oil?

I bought a new G05 last year. I have about 12K miles on it, and the car is not telling me to change the oil. I just went on my BMW connected app on my phone and it says next oil change due in Oct 2020 or 2,500 mi. What gives? Does this mean 2500 miles from 0 or in the next 2500 miles? I've had BMW's for the last 20 years, and they always tell me when to change the oil. Also, does BMW include oil changes? I know it used to. Didn't purchase any additional maintenance at time of purchase. Thanks.

What did the dealer say? And yes, oil changes are included

I didn't call the dealer yet, cause I'm worried that I should have for some reason known to take it in earlier. I would assume the car will tell me when to schedule. Is it normal for the car to be taken in that many miles in?

Definitely seems on the high side for sure, but I wouldn't worry about what the dealer thinks. Just take it in and tell them the vehicle never notified you of an oil change due.

I'm curious if the car is monitoring the oil condition and you fall into the category of change oil every 12 months instead of 10k miles since the condition of the oil is still good. I'm guessing October 2020 is 12 months after you bought your car, or car was built.
