With iOS 9, Apple finally has a mapping app worthy of removing from your “utilities” folder — but only if you live in certain cities.
Where Google dominated Apple was in transit directions, which Apple only added in select cities with the launch of iOS 9. Now, Apple has added transit directions in the Boston area and Amtrak data for cities in the northeast.
Boston is the first city added to Apple Maps since its iOS 9 re-launch, with Sydney expected to be added next. Boston joins New York, London, Berlin, San Francisco and other cities in having transit directions in Apple Maps.
