Siri, I need a ride
Ordering a ride has never been easier. We’re excited to announce that iPhone users will soon be able to use Siri, Apple’s voice-activated personal assistant, to request a ride and receive real-time updates. You can also book a car right within the Maps app.
When you request a ride through Siri, you’ll see the fare and driver information and be able to quickly confirm your request. When you look up a destination in Maps, you’ll have the option to book an Uber to get there. You can even pay with Apple Pay. And with iOS 10’s new Notifications, riders can see when their Uber is arriving on an animated map and use quick actions to contact their driver or cancel their ride.
We hope our riders will love these new features, and we look forward to making them available soon.
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
