Ridesharing app Uber has issued an update that allows users in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. to update their pickup location if they accidentally punch in the wrong address. The update is only available on Apple's (AAPL) - Get Report  iOS.

Users watching their driver's progress can now use an edit button to confirm a new pickup location if the driver is headed the wrong way.

"The pickup is a core part of the Uber experience and we're always looking for ways to make it as painless as possible for both riders and drivers," Uber head of operations in North America Rachel Holt and software engineer Ryan Yu said in a post announcing the update.
