We’re redesigning the Uber App just for you


No one rides like you. So, we’re announcing a redesign of the Uber app and rolling out the first in a series of updates to make it more effortless to go and get with Uber.

Here’s what you’ll see:

A new homescreen

We’ve simplified the homescreen experience so you can book rides and Uber Eats deliveries more easily, with fewer taps, right from the get-go. We also added a new “Services” tab as a one stop shop to find all of the rides and delivery offerings available in your city – from a nearby e-scooter to dinner, flowers, cocktails, and more. And with our new “Activity Hub,” you can keep track of past and upcoming rides and Eats orders all in one place.

More personalized

Booking your favorites – ride types, locations, and more – is also getting more effortless.

Once you tap “where to?” on the homescreen, your “Saved Places” will appear and we’ll suggest a list of personalized destinations and ride types based on your preferences, past trips, and most likely destinations. We’ll also share personalized recommendations for ways to plan and save in your city, based on how you use Uber. 

For example, if you typically ride Uber Green, it will likely be the first option you see; and we’ll also show you other offerings for zero-emission rides. Or, if you typically Reserve your rides in advance, we’ll display other pre-planned options on the homescreen that you may not know about.

A new way to track the progress of your ride on iPhone

When you request a ride from home, do you find yourself frantically rushing around finishing up your to-do list, all while unlocking your phone over and over to see when the driver is arriving?

No more! Now, the Uber app supports Live Activities and Dynamic Island, so iPhone users running iOS 16 or later can easily track the live progress of a ride and receive critical updates like vehicle details, the latest ETA information, and trip status – all on the Lock Screen without opening the Uber app. For iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users, the progress of the Uber ride will also be displayed in the Dynamic Island while your iPhone is unlocked so you can get important details with just a glance, even when you are using other apps.

This is just the beginning. In the coming months, we’ll release more updates tailored to your needs to make it easier to go anywhere and get anything with Uber.

*To experience the redesigned Uber app and new features, make sure your device is up to date with the latest available software and confirm that you are using the latest version of the Uber app.
