Apple spoke about the rollout of indoor maps with iOS 11, helping customers get a better idea of the layout of shopping complexes or even airports. It seems like the iOS 11 beta is already seeing some of these features, with a handful of locations getting indoor maps starting today.
Transit information is an important aspect to navigating, especially in new areas, and Apple Maps is still expanding the feature.
Throughout 2016, and leading up into this year, Apple was adding transit information into Apple Maps on a regular basis.
The iPhone’s Maps app has certainly had a long, bumpy ride up until now. Back when the iPhone first came out, it was powered exclusively by Google Maps. Alas, that meant it didn’t even have turn-by-turn directions. That is until iOS 6 when Apple redesigned the Maps app from the ground up, but this caused significant problems.
Apple continues to roll out Transit data support at the start of 2017, this time adding new information not only in the United States, but also Canada.
Throughout 2016, Apple was rolling out support for transit data in new cities across the globe on a semi-regular basis.
Up until recently, Apple Maps Transit information was only available in the London, England area.
Apple continues to roll out support for transit information within its stock Maps app, aiming to make it even easier for people to get around with public transportation.
