Apple Maps Will Now Show You Alerts for Speed Camera Locations
While Google Maps is the user's first choice when it comes to maps and navigation, Apple is not far behind. The company is in constant efforts to make the platform better for iPhone users. According to the latest, Apple is adding a new feature in Apple Maps which will alert users on speed camera locations. The company is rolling out the addition in various parts of the world where the speed camera feature is supported.
Apple Maps Gains Ability to Show Speed Camera Information
If you are navigating through Apple Maps on your iPhone or even the in-car CarPlay, the app will now show you an alert of the speed camera location (via iCulture). At this point in time, the speed camera information is only available in some regions. Apple Maps will show you a yellow camera icon with a flash where the speed camera is installed on the roads. Apple Maps will show you the location of the speed cameras that check the speed of your vehicle.
Initially, the feature was available in Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, and the United States. Now, it has been rolled in Australia, Austria, Sweden, Belgium, New Zealand, and more. Hopefully, in the near future, the new feature Apple Maps will also be rolled out in other supported regions. Take note that Apple Maps still require a lot of work if it wishes to compete with the likes of Google Maps.
Other than this, Apple is also working on more features for Apple Maps which will be part of the upcoming iOS 14.5 updates or later. For instance, one major addition to Apple Maps will allow users to report speed checks on their routes. As mentioned earlier, Apple Maps has a lot of catching up to do when it comes to navigation. However, it is great to see that Apple is on its way.
