Apple has today made some improvements to both transit directions and lane guidance in Apple Maps. The company has been making a rapid push to get both of these features out the door and has been looking to expand them in as many cities as possible.
Let’s start with transit directions. The feature originally launched in 2015 in Baltimore, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Sydney, Toronto, and around 300 cities in China. The company also added support for several other cities in 2016.
Today, Apple is adding Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville to the list. In retrospect, Google Maps have had transit directions for these locations for several years now (via MacRumors).
The company is also today expanding its lane guidance feature. The feature originally launched alongside iOS 11 and was only available in the United States and China. However, the company has been rapidly expanding and has added Austria, South Africa, and Switzerland to the list.
In total, lane guidance is now available in the following 14 countries: the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
