Apple Maps are not user-friendly at all and the company is always making some serious changes to its Maps every time it announces its new software. This time it is no different. In iOS 11, Maps will feature indoor malls and airport lanes. Through the update of Maps, users will be able to see what stores are present on different floors of malls. Maps will now assist in lane guidance and will also show speed limits on the roads on which you are driving.
iOS 11 is still a couple of weeks away before Apple users can download it. The company will start pushing the update after its launch event on September 12. Before this, users can download the beta version of the app by signing up here.
