Apple Maps has been updated with comprehensive transit data for the Detroit, Michigan metropolitan area, and for the Canadian city of Windsor, Ontario directly across the Detroit River, enabling users in both cities and certain suburbs to navigate using public transportation such as buses and trains.

Is Phoenix, the 6th largest city in the USA ever going to get transit support?? I feel like I've been waiting forever. It's this kinda thing that makes me look at Google solutions more seriously.

Apple Maps is still less accurate than Google Maps, so probably will never "switch" to it.
Accuracy is the same. I use both to test against Apple progress. Google has a few benefits like lane assist, but remember that they keep records of every where you drive and link it to you Google master file so if you care about privacy Apple Maps is clear winner

I've always been a Google Maps user, but the last time I needed directions, I accidentally used Apple Maps, and was pleasantly surprised by it. They've really improved the interface and the directions over the past few years.

The first time I used Apple Map (when it first came out in 2012) I asked Siri for directions to Dave & Busters and I was directed to a literal hole in the ground. Like, a brand new construction site on the outskirts of the city. I gave up on Apple Maps for a few years after that.

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
