Apple Maps just got a huge update with improved navigation, "Look Around", and "Collections"

On Thursday, Apple Maps announced that it is now rolling out a new update to Apple Maps. The new update brings a new map design, and one that shows far more details than before. To start, users will be able to see far more details on land with building outlines to help you search and navigate better.

There are now more comprehensive views of shopping malls, airports, parks, roads, and buildings. Apple promises faster and more accurate navigation with the new update.

Two new features arrive to Apple Maps, both of which are offered by Google Maps with different names. The first is “Collections” which lets Apple Maps users create and share customized lists of saved destinations and “Look Around” which is a lot like Google Maps’ Street View. Currently, the only cities that you can Look Around are New York City, San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, and Oahu with more places to come.

Users can now create a favorites list so they can navigate in one tap. Favorites are accessed right from the main screen. Real-time transit schedules are now available for San Francisco, Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles, and Miami (as of today). You can also share your navigation’s ETA information so friends and family can follow your journey to your destination.
