Apple has announced that iOS 9, the latest version of iOS, will be rolling out to iPhones and iPads in July. Included in iOS 9 is the updated version of Apple’s Maps app.
Here’s Apple‘s description of the new Maps app:
Get around. And see what’s around.
Now you can use public transportation with Maps as your guide. In select cities around the world, a new Transit view shows you lines and stations right on the map. When you plan a route, every step of your trip is laid out from point A to point B. And with the Nearby feature, it’s easier to see what’s around you and decide on places to shop, eat, and more.
Maps now features Transit view, bringing you public transit information with routes and directions. Transit is customized for each city, where available — so you’ll easily recognize signs and be able to pinpoint the nearest subway station entrance or bus stop. You can even ask Siri for transit directions. And since Maps is also an OS X app, you can plan a trip on your Mac and follow the route on your iPhone or Apple Watch when you’re on the go.
When you search in Maps, you’ll see a list of categories including Food, Drinks, Shopping, Fun, and more. And you can explore within each category to see what’s around you. For example, under Food you’ll see Popular, Restaurants, Groceries, Fast Food, Cafés, Bakeries, and Desserts.So you can find just what you’re looking for.
