Apple Maps Lets You Set Leaving or Arrival Times When Getting Directions in iOS 15

Apple Maps received a major overhaul in iOS 15 and in addition to new details in cities, an interactive globe, and enhanced driving directions, there are a handful of other smaller features that are available.

arrive by maps
When getting directions in the Maps app, there's a new feature that lets you choose a time to arrive or a time to leave, which lets you get prospective commute lengths ahead of time.

If you tap on "Leaving Now" next to "My Location" when getting directions to a specific spot, you can choose to get directions with a "Leave at" or "Arrive by" time that lets you select dates and times to leave at or arrive by.

This is a feature that's long been available for Google Maps, but until now, there was no way to get estimated travel times in advance of a trip using the ‌Apple Maps‌ app.

Other new Maps features include 3D road level perspectives for complex interchanges, step-by-step augmented reality directions when walking, a redesigned transit experience, new place cards with updated info about businesses, improved search functionality, and a dedicated Maps user profile for reporting issues, selecting favorites, and choosing a preferred mode of transit.

ADD A STOP.

Did they add the ability to input multiple destinations along a route?? It's so crazy to me that Apple Maps has avoided adding this feature for so long.

One more important wish for me would be routing with intermediate stops.

Do you still have to open Yelp to read details on any business of interest?
This is the one thing I wish Apple would do. Have their own reviews and ratings service built right into maps

Uh, this has existed since at least iOS 14 for public transportation. May be new for driving, but the article doesn't make that clear.

They have built in their own recommendation system (you can even upload your own photos). It's not perfect and it's nowhere near say Google Maps on number of ratings (also, no reviews, just thumbs up or down), but it's a welcome improvement.
