APPLE has finally began adding one of the features that’s been hot on the request list on its Maps app for sometime.
Cycling routes has long been one of the areas that Apple Maps has struggled to keep up with compared to its rival Google Maps.
But at long last the tech giant has put bikes in the fast lane – though only for certain places.
If you’re in the US, you’re in luck.
As Mac Observer reports, all 50 US states now have cycling directions available.
Apparently Hawaii was last to be added, just this month.
The option allows cyclists to choose if they want to avoid hills and busy roads.
And it’ll also say if part of the route has to be done on foot.
As you set off, the app will say what sort of route to expect, such as a mix of main roads and cycle lanes.
More cycle routes on Apple Maps has been a long time coming and a major area to catch up with Google Maps on.
London, Barcelona, China and some cities in Canada were already supported – but vast parts of the world are not.
Apple is actually planning some big improvements to the Maps app at large very soon.
With iOS 16 just around the corner, multi-stop features will finally be added.
Users will be able to access any transit cards they have within Maps, and transit fares will be displayed too.
