Never got lost in an air­port again

Nav­i­gat­ing with Maps in iOS 11 of­fers ex­tra de­tail as you travel from A to B. The speed limit is dis­played at the top left of the screen, and lane guid­ance ap­pears across the top of the screen so you can get into the cor­rect po­si­tion ahead of the next junc­tion along your jour­ney.

In iOS 11 the reach of Maps is ex­tended to cover the in­te­rior of malls and air­ports. For the former you get de­tailed floor plans, along with a busi­ness di­rec­tory and the abil­ity to search for re­tail­ers, as well as brows­ing by floor. For air­ports, fea­tures such as check­points are marked, help­ing you to nav­i­gate the of­ten labyrinthine struc­tures and catch your flight.

As with pre­vi­ous fea­tures added to Maps, the list of cities in which malls and air­ports are cov­ered at launch is pretty short, be­ing mostly fo­cused on large cities. Ap­ple says it plans to add hun­dreds more in­door maps to the ser­vice ev­ery month, though.
