Apple Maps’ new Look-Around function is well done, no doubt.

If you have not yet updated to iOS 13 (we can’t say we blame you to wait, it was buggy) or Apple Maps a try since updating your iPhone ($699 at Amazon), it can be To give time a shot. Apple has some new features to maps with the introduction of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13. It has take Apple almost seven years to Apple maps replace ridiculous attempt  Google Maps to a real mapping solution, which can stand on its own legs, but I think the companies have finally done it. 

For example, after the update your ETA with each contact in your phone, to keep you up to date on your exact location and when you arrive have. In addition, there is a new Look Around feature, that is a lot like  madeGoogle Street View, but from Apple.

Apple Maps is not the only major change in iOS 13. There are many new features including a new swipe-keyboard that makes you swear, the upgrade is appealing.

Parts of the ETA is a convenient way to let your friends know when you will arrive.

use your ETA

This is one of the more useful features added by Apple in recent memory. Of iOS 13.1 can you share your expected arrival time in advance with a friend through Apple Maps, iMessage, or text, if you are using Apple Maps navigation. Here’s how:

1. Start of the Apple Maps navigation and get turn-by-turn directions to a location. 

2. shows If the display of current directions, upwards, on the bottom of the range, your arrival time and shows the end key. 

3. Tap on the ETA Share button. 

4. Select the contact or contacts that you want to share.

iOS-13: cool features, you will want to try now


click the ETA Share button, you may notice that some of the contacts, the a Apple-Maps-icon next to your name, instead of a Symbol messages. If you route your iPhone with iOS 13.1 or higher, and they share the ETA with someone with an iPhone on the iOS 13.1 or later, then Apple has used Maps to share your location and ETA. However, if you share your ETA with a non-iPhone user, or someone with iOS 13 or older on your Apple device, then a message will be sent. 

If Apple Maps sends a text or iMessage, it will read something like the following:

I began to share my ETA with you in Apple maps: arrival in Pepsi Center at 10:44 PM. I’ll let you know when I’ll get to that later.

in fact, if you are slowed down by the traffic, or take a trip, Apple Maps will send another message to let the person know you are running behind us and the new expected arrival time in advance. 

From my Tests, the threshold for triggering additional warning is 5 minutes late. So in the example above, if my new arrival time was 10:49 PM Apple Maps would send you another message with the new time. 

The additional information in the new Apple maps is a world of difference.

There is now a detailed map of the area

Apple has also spent a lot of time, more or less, a scan of every road and street across the country to produce more detailed, better looking map. The new look has been slowly rolling out to the US since the launch of iOS 13 in September, with the expectation that all of the United States until the end of the year. 

Currently, the new map can be seen in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Ohio, Nevada, and West Virginia. In addition, parts of Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, and Virginia have access to the new card. You don’t have to do all the additional details, as soon as Apple rolls it on its Position, it is displayed automatically. 

Another notable change in Apple Maps, a new feature called ” is you Look Around. It is similar to Google Street View with photos show you exactly what to look for a location, and causing them to move to the streets of the city. The only drawback is that it is only in New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Oahu, Houston, and Los Angeles is in the right. Apple has been quick to add more cities to the list (have a Look Around originally launched with support for only San Francisco), and continue to add more cities in the future.

it is pretty cool, if you live in a city that really has it in itself.

How can I look? 

If you don’t live in one of the supported cities, this is all correct-you can check-out look. Here’s how:

1. Open Apple Maps and zoom in on a city, Look Around you. I took San Francisco in the examination to visit because it is one of my favorite cities.

2. Zoom in on a specific area, or until you see a binoculars show up in the upper-right corner of the map; only the location icon and the “i”button.

3. Select binoculars open, Look Around you.

A window will pop-up with a well-known Street View look. Expand To View in full-screen mode by tapping on the double arrow icon. 

you wipe around in the window to change the direction of the photos, or tap you on the road to move to the bottom of the block (just like by tapping on the arrows in Street View). As you to move, you can tap on the name of the company to zoom in on the storefront and the view of its address, hours of operation, phone number and website of the same things, you see, if you are looking for a business in Maps.

These features join the already impressive list of additions, Apple’s iOS-13. Of a new Reminders app a a new method for deleting apps on your iPhone and iPad ($339 at Walmart)there’s a lot to learn
