Apple Maps had a difficult life cycle. After Apple completely dropped the ball during its launch, it has slowly improved its usability and features. After six and a half years, users still prefer third-party apps in iOS 12 over Apple Maps, with Google Maps having a large market share of 67%. But iOS 13 for the iPhone can finally close the gap.
To be fair, Google Maps dominates other map apps, with 75% of mobile users using Android and only 23% using iOS. In addition, Apple does not have Apple Maps in the Play Store, while Google provides its App in the iOS App Store. Overall, Apple Maps has a lot to catch up in terms of features, quality and accuracy, and iOS 1
Apple introduces new features and changes to Maps for which solutions are provided The many complaints that iPhone users had. Apple Maps is more detailed, accurate, and has new features that can match and exceed those of Google Maps. Finally, it may be time to uninstall Google Maps and stick to the stock navigation app.
. 1 Improved Details
While Maps has been significantly improved in locating and navigating locations, it has problems providing the same details and accuracy as the competition. In iOS 13 this is no longer the case.
Apple equipped and covered hundreds of planes and cars with custom sensors and Lidar Over 4 million miles to map Update app. The result is more detailed and up-to-date maps. Buildings, streets, and other 3D structures are better represented in Maps so you can find exactly what you're looking for. With more up-to-date maps, the turn-off instructions are even better.
The update will be released in late 2019 in the United States and in a select number of countries in 2020.
When you display information about a specific location, the desktop card interface is more user-friendly and useful. The data is dynamically updated, including events in one place, such as training sessions, cinema times, and other activities, so that the information displayed is most relevant to the current day.
If you use public transport, the new Maps app includes transit plans for buses, subways and trains, as well as arrival times, stops and connections you can make. It also includes live updates for cancellations, cancellations and other events that make your trip through the city a problem.
On the Home page, you can now add a button for the places you travel frequently, such as: At home and at work. This button appears in the Favorites section. Based on your current location, a number in miles or minutes is displayed that indicates your current distance to the location. When you select one of these locations, the Site Details page opens, showing you not only the fastest route to the location, but also the ability to start navigating immediately.
Collections are custom groupings of your favorite locations. Here you can organize your favorites in a folder that you can share with friends or use to re-enter a location.
When you view a location in Maps, a new binoculars icon is located in the upper-right corner of the Information buttons and the current location (see above). Selecting this option will launch the new Look Around feature. You can view a street view of the area by tapping full screen to see the area in 3D with 360 degree views.
Look Around gives you high-resolution images of the exact location. Instead of seeing a 3D rendering, you can see a series of 3D images that you can scroll through. And if you want to continue exploring in this view, you can even choose roads in your area to quickly travel around the area while maintaining the high quality images. You can also select captions to get more information about places in your environment, such as: B. Directions and Ratings. The new mode works in both portrait and landscape modes.
7. Share Your ETA
Other navigation apps provide an easy way to share your estimated time of arrival with friends, family, colleagues and others. Now iOS 13 offers this feature in the Maps app. The specified ETA is even automatically updated when delays such as traffic accidents occur.
If Maps makes you make a wrong turn or redirects you to the wrong place, it's not easy to send a report to Apple to fix it for everyone else in the future. However, the Maps app in iOS 13 simplifies this with an improved feedback form for submitting false addresses, business locations, hours of operation, and more.
If you're traveling by plane, you've been covered by Maps. It now contains tons of information about your flight, including terminal locations, gate locations, departure times, etc.
If Siri gives you directions while navigating, it may be a bit more complicated than necessary to understand things. Something like "turn left in 1000 feet" does not mean anything to someone who can not judge such distances. That's why Siri has changed to offer a more natural experience. So that 1000-foot line ends something like "turn left at the next traffic light." Apple also states that Maps "brings you closer to your endpoint target, which is especially important for large venues."
While this model applies to developers from the point of view of app creation, iPhone users will be able to take advantage of it. Developers can use vector overlays for objects such as heat maps, weather or buildings on the map, as well as POI and camera zoom and pan controls. It also supports Dark Fashion!
12th Junction View [In China]
I did not experience personal difficulties navigating turns, and this is partly due to Apple's Junction View feature. In this way, you can visually understand which lane you need to be at the next intersections, eg. B. when a highway divides into two parts, turns on busy roads and enters a high street. While this feature was already available in the US, it is available in China on iOS 13.
