New Delhi: Apple announced public transit support to its Apple Maps app during its ongoing WWDC 2015 event in San Francisco. The feature was one of the biggest gaps when Apple replaced Google Maps as the default mapping app on iPhones and iPads in 2012.
The new transit feature will also include directions and schedule for trains or buses. Once you tap on a station, it will show you all the lines that run through it, along with upcoming departure times.
You can also get step-by-step directions that include the walk to the station. The transit feature also lets you share the directions. You can look up for directions on the Mac and send it to your iPhone with just a few clicks.
The new app also comes with the Nearby feature that shows what is around your route, including places to shop, eat, museums, and more. You can further explore within each category of Food, Shopping, Fun, etc. that will further show restaurants, museums, cafes, etc.
The new Mac OS- OS X El Captain and the iOS 9 for iPhones and iPads will now show public transit information in select cities around the world.
