To view an indoor map, open the Apple Maps app on iOS 11 or later, search for a supported location, zoom in, and tap on "Look Inside."

Indoor maps at shopping malls make it easier to find the exact location of stores, restaurants, and restrooms on each floor, in addition to guest services, parking, escalators, stairs, and so forth. Or, swipe up on the place card to browse by category, such as clothes, shoes, accessories, beauty, food, and drinks.

Likewise, at airports, Apple Maps users can zoom in to view terminals, boarding gates, security checkpoints, airline check-in desks, baggage claim carousels, information kiosks, restrooms, stores, restaurants, parking, and more.

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 major 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 on Apple.com.

But at shopping malls, god forbid you actually talk to another human being and ask for directions to a certain store or try to figure out those extremely difficult direction boards that are so ubiquitous in shopping malls. /s

Seriously, people are being so dumbed down by their smartphone.
What an arbitrary thing to say. It might be nice to look at the mall map in advance of arriving there so I can park as close as possible to the one store I want to visit. (Or park as far as possible so I can add to my exercise and move rings?)

And some people just like to look at maps for the sake of look at maps. So, the more to look at the better.

It's still surprising to me how slowly these are added (on all platforms). Does it take more than a day for one person to walk around a mall (or airport) and enter the data?
I read an article once that talked about how Apple goes about mapping out a location. It's a team of 5-10 people with specialized surveying equipment who cover every customer-facing part of the airport. This includes airline ticket desks, shops, restaurants, baggage claim, bathrooms, etc. From there, all the data collected is aggregated, sorted, and interior maps are created. I am guessing it takes a few months to build out the maps and more than likely they send a ground truth engineering team back out to verify what the first team did.

I've used it a few times combined with the airport's iBeacon and indoor wifi systems; it is scary how accurate and exact the maps can be relative to your GPS pin.

Maps for airports I kinda get, for when you're in a hurry, or want to plan ahead and don't miss your flight.

And if you're arriving at the mall shortly before closing, and want to come in the entrance nearest the store you're going to, who do you recommend talking to in your car, and/or what sign can you consult in your car to see where best to park/enter?

Don't assume that everyone's use case is the same as yours, and that anyone doing things differently is stupid.

That's a very, very interesting insight on a socially undesirable aspect of modern technology. Now, do you have any thoughts on how the convenience and anonymity of the Internet has led to so much desk-chair moralizing?

Amazing work in this article showing how Apple is still way behind Google, especially in regards to places of interest. Apple is adding more detail to its maps but not creating place names so it’s not searchable. Looks like a lot of their POS information is coming from Yelp.

Eddy Cue wasn’t the right guy to lead Siri. I don’t think he’s the right guy to oversee maps either. Tim should move it under the new guy he hired from Google.
