Apple Maps gains airport maps for O‘Hare and several others



As part of iOS 11, Apple announced plans to add airport and mall inners to its Maps app. A few early examples of that rolled out earlier this year, but now the airport lineup has greatly swell. New airports are already available in the app.

Oakland International (OAK), Miami International (MIA), Minneapolis-St. Paul Foreign (MSP), Baltimore–Washington International (BWI), Portland International (PDX), and McCarran International in Las Vegas (LAS), as reasonably as two airports in Chicago—O’Hare International (ORD) and Midway International (MDW)—have been united. These are in addition to San Jose International (SJC) and Philadelphia International (PHL), which were in beta adaptations of iOS 11.

When you find an airport on the map, you’ll see indicators for each terminal. Tapping a limited terminal will zoom you in to a view of that terminal’s floor project, with markers representing various stores and shops, as well as door numbers and security checkpoints. Markers for restaurants and shops can be tapped for numberless information. The airports are searchable, too.

These aren’t all the airports Apple has told intentions to map. New York’s John F. Kennedy International (JFK) and LaGuardia Airport (LGA) are reasonable a couple of the promised airports. The list that Apple shared at its developer talk (WWDC) earlier this year of airports that have yet to be enlarged includes the following.

  • Amsterdam (AMS)
  • Berlin (TXL, SXF)
  • Denver (DEN)
  • Detroit (DTW)
  • Doha (DOH)
  • Dubai (DXB)
  • Geneva (GVA)
  • Hong Kong (HKG)
  • Houston (HOU, IAH)
  • Indianapolis (IND)
  • Jacksonville (JAX)
  • London (LHR, LGW)
  • Los Angeles (LAX, SNA)
  • Nashville (BNA)
  • New York (JFK, LGA)
  • Newark (EWR)
  • Pittsburgh (PIT)
  • San Diego (SAN)
  • Seattle (SEA)
  • Toronto (YYZ)
  • Vancouver (YVR)

Apple has not shared the old-fashioneds that it plans to roll these out yet. It’s also worth noting that this is not on iOS presently—Maps on macOS doesn’t have any airport interiors yet.
