Users are not really fan of Apple Maps since its shaky launch. The app has also received an overhaul and can now show suggestions based on the habits it learns and factors like traffic. It can show points of interest on your route. Maps also now gets third-party integrations so you can book rides and check in on social networks without leaving the app. Apple Maps has also got a huge upgrade like many others.
Maps has been redesigned with easier to access controls, destination suggestions that are front and center, and more prominent feedback tools. Maps now features traffic information en route and a dynamic view that pans in and out to allow users to look ahead to what traffic conditions are like.
iOS 10 includes Maps extensions for developers, so apps can integrate directly with the Maps app, letting users do more without having to open multiple apps. For example, with OpenTable integration, Maps can be used to book a dinner reservation, and with Uber integration, a user can call an Uber without leaving the Maps app.
Search along a route
There’s finally a feature to search along a route that’s been programmed into Maps, so you can find gas, food, coffee, and more on your trip. Maps will adjust routes to incorporate stops, letting you know how much time a detour will add.
Maps has also been updated with what Apple calls “Siri intelligence,” and it is now able to make proactive suggestions based on where a user might want to go, offering up the fastest way to get there. Maps bases its suggestions off user habits, location, calendar events, and more.
When you park, Apple Maps will automatically remember your car location so you’ll never forget where your car is, and Maps also now offers optional routes that avoid toll roads.
