Uber has recently announced an update to its driver app that integrates with Apple’s CarPlay system. CarPlay is an Apple product that allows drivers to use their iOS devices safely and conveniently while driving. It enables drivers to access directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and play music through the car’s display and controller.
The integration of CarPlay with the Uber driver app means that drivers will now have access to a larger screen, making it easier to view and use Uber’s navigation system. Features such as heat maps, multiple routes, and side-of-the-street information will be more readily available to drivers.
To connect their Uber app to CarPlay, drivers will simply need to follow three simple steps. First, open the Uber app on their iPhone, then connect their phone to their car via cable or wirelessly, and finally open CarPlay. The feature is currently rolling out to drivers across the United States, with the aim of being available to all users by the end of the month.
In conclusion, the integration of Apple CarPlay with the Uber driver app provides a safer and more convenient driving experience for Uber drivers. With a larger display and more easily accessible navigation features, drivers can focus on providing the best possible service to their passengers.
