Apple Maps has gained indoor maps for an additional four international airports and one shopping mall around the world.

apple maps indoor
The recently enabled airports include Charlotte Douglas International in North Carolina, Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International and Québec City Jean Lesage International in Canada, and Taoyuan International in Taiwan.

When searching for those airports, Apple Maps users can tap "look inside" or simply zoom in to view terminals, boarding gates, security checkpoints, airline check-in desks, baggage claim carousels, information kiosks, restrooms, stores, restaurants, parking garages, and even escalators, elevators, and stairs.

An indoor map is also now available at the Trinity Leeds shopping center in England, according to Apple's iOS feature availability page.

Indoor maps at shopping malls make it easier to find the exact location of stores, restaurants, restrooms, escalators, elevators, and stairs on each floor. The feature enables users to filter stores by categories, such as clothes, shoes, accessories, beauty, food, and drinks, with detailed place cards for each.

When the feature launched with iOS 11, indoor maps were only available in a handful of airports and shopping malls around the world, but Apple has been steadily adding locations over the past year.

The list includes airports and shopping malls in select cities across North America and Europe, including Baltimore, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, London, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Jose, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, and Washington, DC. The full list can be viewed here.

Gotta love the notch implementation in that pic.

Can we all stop pretending that the world is really small already. As much as I hate to say Apple is an American company and will focus on American iPhone owners first. From there I don’t think New Zealand (if that’s what NZ stands for) is a big fish for Apple. For instance I looked at population statistics and New Zealand has .02 the population of US. That’s small fish. China, UK, Spain, etc are bigger targets. But again you’ll prolly see American cities most of the time since the population is big, US is huge, and It’s Apples home turf.

Anywho, I do hope AM comes improves for you. GMaps is meh in UI and has given me about the same error results as AM.
You see, there is just one problem.

Your words could be valid but they are not.

While you claim that the world is as it is, Google is also an American company.

And Google has, without overstating, 1000x more rich data than Apple in Poland.

Is the world smaller for Google?
Is Google NOT an American company?
Is Google capable of magic?

If Apple wants to stay in game, they need to invest, but adding Google Maps to the CarPlay seems like an admission of failure.

Apple Maps is a base for many apps, if they neglect them even more outside the America, they won't matter since people in Europe will continue to use Google Maps as a backend for their apps.

What? So my county is smaller than the US so I can’t complain about inadequate services from my favourite tech company?

Then why bother releasing products internationally if they won’t have full support? I’m stuck in a situation right now that Apple Maps sucks, Auckland houses 1/4th of our population and despite that the mapping data they have is ****. On top of that iOS doesn’t allow you to set default apps so I can’t even use Siri with Google Maps. I’m literally getting punished for living in a different country. Whereas with Google Maps there are no such issues and everything works fine.

It’s a whole lot easier for you to spout that nonsense when you’re not directly affected by it and are missing a lot of features. Have some empathy.

I like that very last bit, which is very much true but people tend to skip over that part.

Last year I was on a trip from the Netherlands to Luxembourg-Germany and Austria, Google had several mistakes in it's maps while Apple was spot on.


As for the topic, I don't care so much for those indoor Maps, I can find my own way, which-to me- is nicer, you'll bump into places you won't see if you use indoor maps.
Google Maps data is actually much better where I live, just because you’ve had the opposite experience does NOT make any complaint less valid.

Replace Apple with Google and you see the irony:

10 posts in, most are whining about Apple Maps not having anything to do with the subject matter. :cry me a river:

Apple "rents" their base map data from TomTom, have for years. Don't listen to me - compare Apple Maps basemap data to TomTom's here ('https://mydrive.tomtom.com/en_us/#mode=viewport+viewport=46.17856,-123.41388,13.7,0,-0+ver=3') to my attached screen shot...


My gripe with Apple is that they rent data from TomTom's TeleAtlas, a company that I've worked with for years. They. Don't. Care. Send. Me. A. Check. Then. We'll. Talk. Maybe. is their mantra.

Gripe at Apple for pushing TomTom to get their data straight and/or swap out for MapBox or HERE base maps. Gripe at TomTom to get their data right. I'd offer that MR's members focus their angst constructively. My business pays several thousands of $$$ every year to "rent" GIS data for base map usage, TomTom's data is always pretty much useless, year in, year out.</rant> FWIW, Google's data isn't much better...

That screenshot is awful. I guess Apple hasn’t figured out how to program to use the safe area insets (that they invented) yet.
The notch is the worst compromise Apple has ever shipped.
This is how it really looks like on X, screenshot is from Schönefeld Airport.

Author probably took screenshot on his iPhone X and put that inside iPhone X marketing frames which resulted in this overlap.
