Apple is expanding the available features in its Maps app in Europe according to a briefing that was held in London on Wednesday and shared by Bloomberg.

Apple Maps for iOS devices and Macs now includes locations of electric vehicle charging stations in the UK, thanks to a partnership with Cirrantic Moovility. More than 3,000 EV charging stations are available in the Maps app in the UK.

In the United States, electric vehicle charging stations have been listed in Maps since December of 2016, through a partnership with ChargePoint.

"We think that consistent, live information of the growing charger infrastructure increases the confidence of EV drivers and, especially with Apple Maps, attracts new user groups to sustainable mobility offerings like EV cars," said Arne Meusel, CEO and co-founder of Cirrantic. "In the U.K. we started with supporting the major charger operators, including Podpoint, CYC, Ecotricity, NPower and NewMotion. Any interested operator is welcome to set up a connection with us."

Apple is also introducing public bicycle rental and drop-off points in London, Paris, and New York, an addition that's meant to bring Apple Maps in line with Google Maps, which also lists public bicycle rental locations.

Additional Maps improvements are likely on the horizon as Apple works to open a new Apple Maps development center in Hyderabad, India, which will employ more than 4,000 people. Apple is also employing a team of robotics and data collection experts who will use drones to further bolster Apple Maps.

Correct. These are the only places in Europe where bicycles are bred in special farms, & then trained to allow humans to travel on their backs.
It is known.

Actually it works in rural Scotland as well, not just London. Very useful as we recently bought a BMW i3. Nice addition Apple! :cool:

Geographically the UK is part of Europe.

It is also, until the "Leave" process is completed, part of the European Union.

After Brexit, the UK will still be geographically part of Europe. (Even though some Brits refuse to believe that…). :)
I forgot adding /s on the end. Sorry :)
