Apple’s New Map, Expansion #5: Northeast U.S.

Apple Maps today rolled out its new maps for the northeastern U.S. Justin O’Beirne has a terrific post (as usual) illustrating the differences between the old and new maps. Here in Philly, one big improvement is significantly more prominent indicators of one-way streets — and almost all streets in Philly are one way.

Unmentioned in O’Beirne’s report is that Look Around debuted today in Manhattan. From what I’ve seen in a few minutes of exploration, it’s impressive — detailed, intuitive, and fun. Update: Looks like Look Around is now available for all five boroughs of New York City, including the magnificent Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
