Apple Maps scores indoor maps for over 20 shopping malls and airports around the world

Apple Maps scores indoor maps for over 20 shopping malls and airports around the world
Apple Maps has just been graced with detailed indoor maps for over 20 shopping malls and airports across the US, Denmark, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Canada. With the newly-scored functionality, users will be able to zoom in and explore the layouts of the supported venues. Restaurants, shops, fast-food joints, and most other venues will be displayed for your convenience at the mall, as well as service areas like restrooms, elevators, and stairs.

In airports, you will be able to view terminals, boarding gates, and check-in areas, which is definitely an extremely useful functionality that can potentially save you a lot of woes while before your next flight.

As pointed out by MacRumors, you can make use of the feature by zooming on the location in question and tapping on the "Look inside" button that will appear.

The total amount of supported shopping malls and airports that are fully mapped is ever growing and can be checked over on Apple's website, but here's a list of all the newly-supported locations:

  • Lenox Square in the Atlanta, GA;
  • Phipps Plaza in the Atlanta, GA;
  • Perimeter Mall in Atlanta, GA;
  • Cumberland Mall in Atlanta, GA;
  • North Point Mall in Alpharetta, GA;
  • Mall of Georgia in Buford, GA;
  • The Shoppes at River Crossing in Macon, GA;
  • Oglethorpe Mall in Savannah, GA;
  • Peachtree Mall in Columbus, GA;
  • Mall St. Matthews in Louisville, KY;
  • Oxmoor Center in Louisville, KY;
  • Towne Mall in Elizabethtown, KY;

Apple Maps has matured and works great now. You made a dumb ass post for likes, and only got 4 in 7hrs. Yikes.

Yes Apple Maps has improved and compared to what it used to be could be regarded as great (as it was so bad in the past). Compare it to Google Maps however and it is not that great, yet Apple has had 5-6 years to catch-up.

Apple maps launched in September of 2012, and has improved massively. Google maps had its issues too, during its infancy. No need to compare them, I use both, and both get you there.

I agree Apple Maps has improved a lot, but it needed to it was so bad. However, Google Maps has improved a lot too and is still a significantly better maps app than Apples. I have tried both, in the US Google is still ahead, elsewhere it is a long way ahead.

Dumb ass post? I'm not wrong, most people tend to use Google Maps instead of Apple Maps on their iPhones - even people who aren't exactly tech enthusiasts

This is a great idea. If only they had one more city in my area on this list...

20, that's pretty impressive for the richest company in the world. The first mall in North America opened in my city, and not one of them is present on this list. Lacking big time.

Try Google's indoor map. They have 10,000 locations just after one year after it's launch on 2011, they didn't show the number after that but I'm sure they already have almost all major malls and airports on this planet by now.

Fascinating... USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore and.... Copenhagen in Denmark XD I live in Denmark and the population in Denmark (the whole country) is around 5.8 million. But sadly enough, we have a lot of sheeps in Denmark.

Yet more proof Apple Maps is way behind Apple Maps, even though it has had 6 years to catch up.

20? Not 2000 or even 200? 20 that's just pathetic.
