Indoor Maps

Apple Maps indoor mapping feature has expanded to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina, and dozens of malls across the United States and other countries. We're not going to list them just because of the sheer number of new additions to the list, but mall maps have expanded in a major way since first being introduced in iOS 11.

You can see a full list of malls (and airports) that have indoor maps available in Apple Maps on Apple's Feature Availability page.

Speed Limits

In Canada, Apple has confirmed official support for speed limits within Apple Maps, a feature that Canadian users first began noticing a few months ago. Prior to the addition of Canada, speed limit information, a new iOS 12 feature, was only available in the UK and the United States.

Transit

Transit directions now also appear to be available across the states of Louisiana and Minnesota, with Apple updating previous listings that specified just Minneapolis and New Orleans.

I still don't understand why Kansas City, Missouri—the 30th largest metropolitan area in the United States with 2.1M people—still doesn't have 3D maps. Springfield, Missouri—the 115th largest metropolitan area in the United States has 3D maps. Kansas City does not. I don't get it. Raiders fans out in Cupertino?

this is mind boggling to me. I get it that only KC people are going to care about this, but it’s objectively absurd.

I just wish these features were much faster to roll out. Flyover is an iOS 6 feature which still has a lot of rolling out to do.
I do use Apple Maps by default but have to constantly switch to Google for cycling info and offline maps (when travelling). It's just not enough to announce something and give it very limited availability.
