The latest Uber iPhone app update has been released into the App Store and we’re super excited to unveil one of our most requested features ever: pre-request ETAs. Woot woot!

Previously, we would give riders an indication of ETA only after they’ve requested. However, with this version of the app, we provide riders with an estimated ETA to the nearest available car before they make a request (see below).

We’re hopeful that these pre-trip ETAs will remove much of the stress associated with times of high demand, and let you make informed decisions about how quickly to finish your drink / ask for the check before requesting your car.

Also in this version of the app, we’ve added the ability to update your credit card details on the go – something that previously could only be done via our website.

We’d love to get your feedback on the ETAs – especially in terms of their accuracy in the wild. As always, email us or tweet us at @Uber_SF or @Uber_NYC.
