Multi stop routing is something I’ve been waiting on for a while. Glad it’s finally here.

Honestly, with such a home runs in many device categories, I was for sure thinking we'd see the "highly requested" offline maps, too. Good updates, though.

Thank God. Been wanting this feature for years. This will make it easier to plan a route that’s different than the automatic options you get when you can only specify your final destination.

Nope. No Apple Map navigation for me. I stopped using (5 years ago) Maps when it constantly and erroneously told me to deviate from my usual route because of traffic issues. Another time it told me to drive off the main route and we circled around back to the main route from where we deviated.
Google Maps still does things like that when I use it. My favorite Google feature is when it tells me to turn left, then make a U-turn, instead of just turning right in the first place. Has happened a few times in different intersections.

Apple’s maps have their issues, but navigation has been super reliable for me for the last several years now.

I'm not sure if multi-stop routing is a feature to brag about. This feature was available 20 years ago when Microsoft Streets was still on a CD. I remember helping my brother taking photos of homes he provided insurance for. One day alone I visited dozens of places to take photos with driving instructions printed on nearly 30 pages. There was no such thing as smartphone back then.
