MacRumors reports today that Apple has continued to expand one of the most popular features of its Maps app by adding indoor maps for eight more airports in the United States.
The newly added airports include O’Hare International and Midway International in Chicago; McCarran International in Las Vegas; Baltimore-Washington International; Miami International; Minneapolis-Saint Paul International; Oakland International; and Portland International. They join the original two airports that were introduced via iOS 11, namely Philadelphia International and San Jose International.
Now when you search for the above-mentioned airports on Apple Maps, you can select “Look Inside” or just zoom in to see the terminals, boarding gates, security gates, check-in desks, baggage claim area, info kiosks, restrooms, shops, restaurants, parking garages, as well as stairs, elevators, and escalators, among other things.
The new feature is so detailed that you can even browse floor-by-floor, or look for specific shops or other amenities in a specific terminal. And even better than that, another incredibly useful aspect of the indoor maps is that when you tap on the name of a restaurant you will see more details and photos about the restaurant, including opening hours.
Presumably more airports will be added soon in the US and then worldwide.
