DSC_0062United Airlines announced the addition of several significant features to its iPhone app.

New in version 2.1.28 are enhanced baggage tracking, the ability to save MileagePlus frequent-flyer program membership cards in Apple Wallet, and new reservation management features.

The “Track my bag” feature, although currently in beta, provides real-time updates on the status of checked bags, such as loaded onto the aircraft, unloaded from a flight, and available at the baggage carousel.

The airline also added the ability to cancel or change flights although reservations made via third parties aren’t yet supported.

In addition, the new version of the app allows travelers to save their United Club card and MileagePlus cards in the Apple Wallet for easy access.

Finally, for iPhones that support 3D touch, users will be able to use that feature to quickly navigate to specific features in the app such as booking a flight, checking in, and viewing flight status.
