Google Maps received an update today on our iPhone that is quite interesting because of the new features it has incorporated, focused on improving our user experience and I think it is an update that will be very well received, and I hope that Apple will take good note of all these improvements in iOS 12.
These new features that we can enjoy today on our iPhone, already had the Android users for a year, so the delay to reach iOS is quite considerable.
The most notable new feature is the incorporation of an option called “Explore” that will give us information about everything that is happening around us and that may end up being of interest to us.
For example, if we are at dinner time, it will give us information about restaurants that are near us and with good ratings, as well as curious data about the place where we are currently.
Next to the Explore tab we have the real-time traffic information in our area, and we also have direct access to the public transport routes that pass by us. This information is very useful at any time and we appreciate you providing it for quick access as soon as you enter the application.
Also included in this update is the option to customize your home or work icons. For example, you can assign an icon of a cabin to your home, which is quite funny, although it remains a possibility of personalization without further ado.
This update can be found in the App Store. Let me know in the comment box what you think about this update.
