Apple Maps Lets You Set Leaving or Arrival Times When Getting Directions in iOS 15
Tuesday June 8, 2021. 01:22 AM , from MacRumors
Apple Maps received a major overhaul in iOS 15 and in addition to new details in cities, an interactive globe, and enhanced driving directions, there are a handful of other smaller features that are available.
When getting directions in the Maps app, there's a new feature that lets you choose a time to arrive or a time to leave, which lets you get prospective commute lengths ahead of time.
If you tap on 'Leaving Now' next to 'My Location' when getting directions to a specific spot, you can choose to get directions with a 'Leave at' or 'Arrive by' time that lets you select dates and times to leave at or arrive by.
This is a feature that's long been available for Google Maps, but until now, there was no way to get estimated travel times in advance of a trip using the Apple Maps app.
Other new Maps features include 3D road level perspectives for complex interchanges, step-by-step augmented reality directions when walking, a redesigned transit experience, new place cards with updated info about businesses, improved search functionality, and a dedicated Maps user profile for reporting issues, selecting favorites, and choosing a preferred mode of transit.
