The latest minor Apple Maps update once again expands the directory of worldwide towns with Flyover support, also bringing traffic info to Taiwan.
The newest Apple Maps update adds Flyover support for a quartet of new locations, Nearby searches in two countries, and transit info in Los Angeles.
This is a story of redemption. It’s also the story of acceptance. And it’s partly a story of not giving a rat’s bottom about which app you go to for your maps. Apple certainly cared where its users got their location apps when it launched Apple Maps back in 2012. With geological renderings of wonder, mislabeled roads and points of interest and, for the longest time, a lack of basic transit directions, it’s a wonder how Apple Maps came to be chosen over Google Maps for iOS users.
That’s what Apple is reporting. Specifically, its app handles 5 billion [...]
Third-party providers have app after app after app for consumers to tap into to know when their bus, train, trolley, ferry, gondola and/or teleporter in thousands of cities across ten continents and a couple of galaxies on — and this is more important than sarcasm — almost all major mobile operating platforms. Native apps, too.
In 2015, Apple has rolled out transit directions to 10 cities and several systems in China.
The roster has now jumped up by one city: Boston. It won’t make the Red Line any more tolerable in rush hours, but at least, for iPhone users, [...]
Nearly three years ago, Apple released its Maps app. Prior to September of 2012, Google Maps was shipped on every iPhone. But with Google beginning to amp up its own mobile platform efforts at the time, it was clear time that a break had to happen between the two tech behemoths. No competition has its players hold their hands along the way.

Since then, it’s had time to make back its ground and improve [...]

A new Apple Maps parking feature may be on the way, according to imagery found within the iOS 8 Maps app.
We’ve heard the rumors of Apple bringing a default “In The Car” feature for iOS 7.1, which should be released in the next couple of weeks. This feature is part of Apple’s Map features, which are still debatably bad when compared to Google Maps, but which Apple seems to plan to differentiate with enhanced navigation features.
Now one thing that’s interesting is that these features already exist on the current iOS 7.0.3, which is odd since developers already have access to iOS 7.1 beta. In the video bellow you’ll notice that most, if not all of [...]
