The iOS Waze app has been given a major redesign intended to make it easier to use for navigating, reporting problems and sharing your ETA with others.
Steps to navigate have been minimized. The Waze map, menus and road reporting system are redesigned for higher visibility and clarity, including less clutter on the map, brighter buttons, and color-coded pins per report type. From head to toe, Waze has been revamped with a stronger focus on the driver and the social driving experience.
Interestingly, although Waze is now owned by Google, the iOS app has been updated ahead of the Android version …
The main aim of the new UI is to reduce the number of taps required in use. For example, a single panel now shows your ETA, allows you to add stops en-route, shows alternate routes and lets you send your ETA to friends.
Check out the video below for a quick overview. Waze 4.0 is a free download from iTunes.

Nice update but I think that some things, like looking for gas station are less easy than before
Best app, finally fits the iPhone 6(s) Plus!
Israeli brains. I love it!
Does it work on carplay yet?
Deleted it from my iPhone the minute I read that Google bought it.
Google bought it two years ago :)
Have fun with Apple Maps!
I have a new 6S running the newest iOS and the app crashes on launch every time. Quite annoying because I use WAZE all the time out here in Los Angeles

Try rebooting your phone. Sometimes it can stop that problem.
I’m having the same issue on my 5S. Tried rebooting the phone and still no luck… :(
Can’t say I hate the new GUI, but definitely not loving it. Please bring back the older zoom capabilities (new one doesn’t let you zoom in) and also more street names.
