Apple Has Rolled Out A Much Better Maps Feature For Aussie Users


Apple Has Rolled Out A Much Better Maps Feature For Aussie Users

Apple has updated its Maps app to give users a much better and more engaging experience of where they are and where they're going.

The tech company has addressed some technical aspects of the app, like delivering faster and more accurate navigation for drivers.

But they've also added in a few spicy extras that will be cool to soak up.

They have mapped out Aussie routes for buses and trains and will allow you to pin your favourite lines.

You'll get a notification when it's time to hop off (which is a game changer to prevent you missing your stop while you're fumbling for your phone), and you'll also get to see the route and all the information on your Apple Watch.

The updated Maps app will also give you much better real-time data on schedules and delays.


Apple has now also launched Look Around, which is street-level imagery that allows you to look at where you are or where you're going with decent images.

There's nothing worse than looking at a map and having no clue whether you're in the right place. Look Around will ensure you can pick out landmarks in the image to let you know you're where you're supposed to be.

Sydney and Melbourne users will also get access to augmented reality walking guidance if you are commuting on foot.


Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Services, said: "Apple Maps is the best way to explore and navigate the world, all while protecting your privacy.

"We are excited to bring this experience to even more users with today's rollout in Australia.

"The map has been rebuilt from the ground up, with better navigation, richer detail, more accurate information for places, and remarkable features that only Apple can deliver, like Look Around, Share ETA, and more.

"Now it is easier than ever for users to find the places they love and get to where they're going."


You'll also be able to add in favourites to your map if you go somewhere often and don't want to type it in every time, indoor maps for places like airports and shopping centres, as well as flight information when you're heading out of the city.
