Ride-hailing giants Uber have announced a redesign of the Uber app which will see more personalisation and services all in one place.

The homescreen will allow users to book rides and Uber Eats deliveries more easily and with fewer taps. There’s also a new ‘Services’ tab which acts as a one stop shop to find all of the rides and delivery offerings available in the city. These services range from a nearby e-scooter to dinner, flowers, cocktails, and more.

A new ‘Activity Hub’ keeps track of past and upcoming rides and Eats orders all in one place.

The app will also save more personal details for future use. Once you tap ‘where to?’ on the homescreen, a users ‘Saved Places’ will appear. A suggested list of personalised destinations and ride types based on historical preferences, past trips, and most likely destinations will also be generated.

Uber will also share personalised recommendations for ways to plan and save in the city users are travelling around, based on how they have used Uber in the past.

Finally, users of the Uber app on iPhone will find a new way to track the progress of their ride.

The Uber app supports Live Activities and Dynamic Island, so iPhone users running iOS 16 or later can now track the live progress of a ride and receive 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.
