Uber has ended support for its app on the Apple Watch.

According to MacRumors, the ride-hailing giant has now shut down the app on the accessory platform, and those trying to access it will be met with a rather oddly worded message reading: “Please switch to the Uber mobile app. We are no longer supporting the Apple Watch app. Sorry for the inconvenience.”

As the outlet points out, Uber itself hasn’t removed the app yet from Apple’s App Store and the support page hasn’t been updated either to reflect the changes, but the shut down shouldn’t come as a surprise, as its WearOS counterpart was removed as early as two years ago and competitor Lyft‘s Apple Watch app has also been removed since 2018. It’s unclear why Uber decided to end support at this time, but it’s likely due simply to low user count.

Elsewhere in tech, Apple’s next iPhone SE is rumored to support 5G connectivity.
