Apple Maps takes on Google Maps with indoor maps, new transit directions

06 February 2019 3

There was a time when Apple Maps lacked behind Google Maps by a huge margin though it’s quite evident that the gap has been minimizing fast. The Cupertino tech giant has been working with full throttle to make Apple Maps strong contender to Google Maps. 2018 was a great year for Apple Maps where the app was improved a lot backed by more data points and integration of bike sharing data across 179 cities.


Those days are long gone when people would joke around Apple Maps that it's not reliant. Now with much-improved data points and transit information for public transportation incorporated into Apple Maps, that puzzle is solved as well. Apple has silently updated the corresponding iOS feature availability page sharing that transit directions for new places like 'Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, North Dakota, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Texas' have been updated.

Interestingly, Apple maps just don’t only help with the outdoor commutes, it also helps you navigate indoor through malls. This would especially be helpful in countries where shopping malls are more like a widespread city. How often do you use Apple Maps? Let us know in the comment section below.
