Apple Maps will make getting around easier with new bike-sharing feature

Apple Maps now includes bike sharing data for more than 175 cities

Apple and Ito World has recently signed a partnership, so from now on, Apple Maps will boast data regarding nearest bike-sharing stations. The update comes as Apple has struck a deal with data company Ito World.

Apple is adding more features to Apple Maps in order to get the attention of audience who are more tilted towards Google Maps.

Apple has parented with Ito World to bring bike-sharing information in more than 175 cities in 36 countries, including San Francisco, New York, and London.

To try the feature out for yourself, type "bike sharing" in the search field for the option to find out what's nearby. Different cities will have different bike sharing services with different names.

Then, flight attendants began telling everyone on-board they would be making an emergency landing and to keep their heads down. The fire department said two people were brought to local hospitals but did not reveal the nature of their injuries.

Apple Maps doesn't tell you the number of available bikes or empty docks. However, it does not provide information on a startup that's operating a dock-less bike-sharing service.

The maps app lists Citi Bike in NYC, Divvy in Chicago, Biketown in Portland, BIXI in Montreal, and Velib in Paris.

Despite its shortcomings, the latest Apple Maps update is remarkable in the sense that it shows how the Cupertino giant is dedicated to improving the user experience of its mapping service. In fact, the app has now added functionalities which allows you to search for airports and malls, as well as lane guidance, public transits, EV charging stations, and much more. Let's be honest, bike sharing isn't equivalent to the Mario Kart skin Google rolled out to Google Maps for MAR10 Day, but it's a good start.
