Uber users asking why server is down

By Daniel Chubb - Jan 19, 2017

It looks like more problems are being reported in regard to the Uber system with users asking why the server is down today, especially in regard to the iPhone platform. We’ve had a number of our readers reach out to us and on social networks like Twitter, asking is Uber down on 19th January 2017?

You can see hundreds of users contacting Uber directly also, explaining they are “unable to use Uber” on an iPhone or other devices as well. Another tweet displayed an error message within a screenshot on an Android device, this said “Sorry for the delay, we had some trouble connecting, but should have you moving shortly”.


Is Uber down for you today on 19th Jan? You can see the said screenshot above. At the time of publication we cannot see a pattern with certain cities being impacted with any Uber outage, as it seems like users are reporting issues from a number of areas, so if you find the service down today then please leave a comment below with your location.


We’ve reached out to Uber customer support and are yet to receive a comment. Any update in regard to today’s problems will be published below.
