I am following all of the online tutorials and videos to schedule an Uber but they not working on my iPhone X within the Uber App. 

Can I schedule an Uber in advance in Denver Colorado? I'm told that I need to "Tap the car-and-clock in the Where to box to schedule your pickup time." 

The car/clock icons are not appearing in my Where to box in my app. 

What do I need to do?

Also, can I schedule in advance an Uber from Cleveland Hopkins Airport to a relatives home in Canton, Ohio? If so, how?

    Just call a car service. actually better, just call an Uber when you need a car.  Scheduling Uber is for schmucks.

    I've had a few riders from other cities say that they can only schedule trips heading to the Airport. Apparently its only in certain markets. I am assuming in big busy cities its available. In smaller less busy cities it may not be available or only available when heading to and from airports in those cities. Uber doesnt assign a driver for any cities scheduled trips. That request goes out like all other request, to the nearest driver. It does go out a few minutes earlier than the scheduled time because if the driver is 1 min late Uber gives rider a $10 credit in my market. In my experience and in speaking with riders from all over the US the scheduling option isnt available in all cities. If you are in a city or rural area that it usually takes an Uber 15/20 min to get to you and you are leaving after 10pm before 7am I would not depend on Uber. Especially if you need to be somewhere by a certain time.
