Apple Maps gets new features

Apple is preparing version 14.5 of iOS, and through the beta version of the software update we have seen some interesting additions of new features to iPhones and iPads. One of them will be the updating of its Maps, with Apple Maps now having the function of reporting accidents, adverse conditions and speed control points (traffic radar).

This has been around for quite some time in Waze, with Apple Maps not being significantly different. More specifically, after defining a destination and selecting the desired route, you will be able to report any events you encounter on your way.

This will be done by swiping up, where the available options will be displayed and there will be a “Report” button to highlight the aforementioned events. In addition, an event can be reported via Siri, saying for example “Hey Siri, there’s an accident”, and then Apple’s digital assistant will send a report to the servers.

If several similar reports for this location are collected, then a notification will automatically appear on the map of all users. This way, you will be able to watch the accidents live, if there are cameras that record speed and other traffic hazards.

This service will initially be available in the US, to be followed later in the rest of the world. Other additions to iOS 14.5 include unlocking Apple Watch mobile media, new app tracking transparency policies (apps will need to ask your permission to access the ad ID), and support for Dual-SIM 5G.
