iOS and macOS users can now use voice navigation with the help of the turn-by-turn navigation launched in India by Apple. The technology is not just limited to iOS and macOS users, but it can also be used in cars with the help of Apple CarPlay. To recall, the Apple Maps app was launched in India back in 2012. Back then, it was just a kind of rudimentary map, which did not show directions while moving to places.
Eventually the map service improved over the years, showing the location of many establishments, businesses and other important locations in major cities. However, the turn-by-turn feature wasn’t available until now. Right now, the app might guide you through inconvenient routes to reach your destination. However, as more people use it, eventually it is expected to improve. But now, it is best not to completely rely on the turn-by-turn feature of this map app.
Some features are missing such as transport information. Thus, you won’t know how to reach a place using various means of transportation. Also, there is no flyover support as of now. As Apple maps has introduced the turn-by-turn feature finally, we can also expect it to have other features coming in the future. Recently, Apple announced that it is going to introduce the AirPlay support for a range of TV brands. Based on the information given on the AirPlay page, users can stream 4K HDR video on TV that will replicate the screen of your iPhone.
With this, they can do a range of activities like connecting their photos from iCloud, connect music to their television and control homekit accessories. There are built-in controls in your iPhone that appear in apps, on the Lock screen and in Control Center. Connecting your iPhone to the TV means that it will act as a remote to navigate your TV features. One can play, pause, fast-forward, rewind and adjust the volume on their televisions.
Very recently, Apple also announced that it is soon going to authorise iTunes for Samsung TVs which constitute the 2018 and 2019 models. This is the first time Apple has allowed a third party, apart from Windows to access its video and audio library.
