Maps take a whole new turn.

Offering a host of innovative features, Maps makes finding and getting to your destination faster and easier than ever. With new indoor maps, turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3D views and proactive suggestions, Maps provides an incredible sense of direction.1

Proactive suggestions

Maps predicts the places you’re most likely to go and recommends the fastest way to get there based on traffic, time of day, your location and your schedule. So no matter where you’re going, Maps can suggest the best route that avoids traffic. Or routes for upcoming meetings on your calendar.

Transport

Bringing you public transport information for subways, buses, trains and ferries, the Transport feature is customised for each city where it’s available. Plan a route, pull up schedules, get step-by-step directions or ask Siri to guide you. You can even favourite a specific transit line to get up-to-date information and reminders. The list of places supported with Transport is growing.2

Indoor Maps

With new Indoor Maps, you can get detailed directions inside major airports and shopping centres around the world. Find out which restaurants are past security at the airport, where the nearest restroom is or what floor your favourite store is on at the shopping centre.

Apps within Maps

With new third-party app extensions, you can do things like book a table at a restaurant and a ride to get you there — all without leaving Maps. Make a reservation through Quandoo, for example, and Maps automatically adds it to your calendar. You can also book and pay for rides using Uber. Once you’ve booked a ride, Maps shows you the driver, the car and the driver’s current location.

Flyover

See select major metro areas from the air with photo-realistic, interactive 3D views. You can move your device through space to experience a city from above or explore in high resolution as you zoom, pan, tilt and rotate around the city and its landmarks.3

Siri

No matter where you roam, Siri can help you find your way.4 To get to your destination, ask Siri to take you there and Maps immediately guides you along the fastest route. And if you feel peckish on the way, ask Siri to look for the closest fast food restaurant or café.

iCloud

When you hear about a great new spot — like a refurbished cinema or a restaurant-slash-boutique — save it as a bookmark in Maps. iCloud stores the locations you’ve bookmarked, so they’re easily accessible on all your devices. So whether you plan a trip from your Mac or get turn-by-turn directions from your iPhone, you’ll stay fully informed, no matter what device you’re using.5
