In many of these locations, transit information has been available for a few weeks, but Apple is often slow to confirm with updates to its Feature Availability page. Several of the above-listed locations also had transit directions in a few major cities, but transit information is now available statewide.

Transit directions have also expanded to encompass all of Australia, and as was discovered in January, transit information is available in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.

Apple has introduced indoor maps three new airports, including Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), Newcastle International Airport (NCL), and Milano Linate Airport (LIN).

Indoor maps have also expanded to quite a few malls in the cities listed below:

  • Bellingham, WA
  • Bloomington, IN
  • Boulder, CO
  • Brookvale, Australia
  • Burwood, Australia
  • Carindale, Australia
  • Cheltenham, Australia

Indoor maps for malls and airports were introduced in iOS 11, providing full layouts of each mall or airport location with icons for restaurants, elevators, bathrooms, shops, and other notable landmarks. Different floors are clearly marked, making it easy to navigate through unknown areas.

A full list of all of the airports and mall locations where the ‌Apple Maps‌ indoor mapping feature is available can be found on Apple's Feature Availability website, which also houses a list of all of the locations where transit directions are available.

Is that picture really what maps looks like in landscape mode? Has apple not updated it so the buttons aren’t obscured by the notch?
No, it's not. It just a X frame that was poorly superimposed on a iPhone 8 Plus screenshot. This ('https://appleinsider.com/articles/18/12/20/apple-maps-could-get-easier-to-use-on-the-iphone-with-arkit-advancements') is more accurate.

That seems like quite a random sampling of malls from around the world. How does Apple decide which malls to list - do the mall operators have to pay-to-play?
They don’t pay but mall operators do need to be involved. I think you’ll find that of the malls listed, they’re probably operated by many of the same property managers.

My local transit system (HART) in Connecticut is not included. So I think Apple is overstating this a bit.
...but CT Rail is...I'm not sure every city gets the same level of "transit" like NYC or SF does.

But yeah, I would think HART should be in there based on what they said.

edit: CT Transit (bus) also comes up.

edit #2: Google Maps doesn't show HART either though...I'm guessing it has something to do with HART and not the mapping systems. They have to agree to share their info.

Nobody will ever know for sure. They turned it the wrong way and committed a felony the world over. Some things like that are law. The top of the phone falls left, by law. Just like brushing your teeth requires you to wet the brush, apply the toothpaste, and wet that boy again before brushing. Law.
