Uber added the ability to request pet friendly rides in 2019. Previously riders had to clear pet passengers with drivers, but can now pay an additional $3 to $5 to travel with their furry friends. Uber Pet is not required for service animals because state and federal laws prohibit drivers from refusing rides to riders with disabilities. A "service animal" is any animal that’s "trained to work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability," according to the Uber guidelines. Riders can ask "if the animal required because of a disability," and "what tasks it has been trained to perform." No special vests, tags or any other kind of proof is required to identify that the animal is a service animal.
Some iPhone owners are tired of the relentless stream of commentary on social media. If Twitter is taking up too much time, or tweets are getting you down, the service provides an easy way to deactivate your account. Accounts that are accidentally or wrongfully deactivated can be restored within 30 days before they are wiped. For anyone ready to throw in the towel on their twitter handle, accounts can be deleted in a few steps.
Netflix and chill takes on a whole new meaning when binge watching. Plowing through a whole series in days seems to be the whole point of the service's auto-play feature. Netflix automatically starts the next episode of the current series, often before the credits are even finished rolling. There's only a few seconds in which to abort the next episode. Once it's started, it's already too late.
Siri continues to learn new tricks on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Not too long ago, Siri was unable to access any Settings or deliver some categories of information.

Auto-fill can automatically enter the right password at the right time.
