“If you haven’t been using Apple’s Maps app, the all-new version in iOS 10 is worth another look,” Susie Ochs writes for Macworld. “It’s prettier than ever, smarter about finding stops for gas and coffee along your actual route, and thanks to machine learning iOS 10 it can do things like remind you when it’s time to leave for your next appointment, and then remember where you parked your car.”
“I use Maps on a daily basis, after relying on Waze or Google Maps for years,” Ochs writes. “I switched over to Maps permanently when I got my Apple Watch, because I love how the watch can tap me on the wrist before I need to make each turn.”
