APPLE has finally started adding one of the features that has been hot on its Maps app wish list for a while.
Bike routes have long been one of the areas where Apple Maps has struggled to keep up compared to its rival Google Maps.
But finally, the tech giant has put bikes on the fast track — albeit only for certain locations.
If you’re in the US, you’re in luck.
As the Mac Observer reports, all 50 US states now have bike routes available.
Apparently Hawaii was the last to join, just this month.
The option allows cyclists to choose whether to avoid hills and busy roads.
And it is also indicated if part of the route has to be covered on foot.
As you drive off, the app will tell you what kind of route to expect, e.g. B. a mixture of main roads and cycle paths.
More bike routes on Apple Maps have been a long time coming and are an important area to keep up with Google Maps.
London, Barcelona, China and some cities in Canada were already supported – but large parts of the world were not.
Apple is actually planning some big improvements to the Maps app overall very soon.
With iOS 16 just around the corner, multi-stop capabilities are finally being added.
