What’s New With the Maps App in iOS 16: Multi-Stop Routing, Transit Card Support and More

The iOS 16 Maps app didn’t get as many changes as some of the other apps in the update, but there is at least one major change that’s worth noting — multi-stop routing. Multi-stop routing is a long-awaited Maps feature, plus there are a few other new options.

This guide highlights all of the features that are new to the Maps app in ‌iOS 16‌, which is available now as a public beta with a full public release likely coming in September.

Multi-Stop Routing

With ‌iOS 16‌, you can plan a route that has multiple stops for the first time. Prior to now, you could only route yourself to a single location, and the Apple Maps app was far behind competitors like Waze and Google Maps when planning for more than one stop on a trip.

When you type in a destination in the Maps app in ‌iOS 16‌, you can tap on the new “Add Stop” button to choose multiple locations. Up to 15 locations can be added on one route, and the Maps app will go to each stop in turn. Note that the Maps app does not optimize the route, so you’ll need to do that manually when you type in stops.

Add Stops With Siri

If you’re already on the road and want to insert a stop into your route, you can use Siri voice commands to do so.

Maps Interface Updates

To accommodate the new multi-stop routing option, getting directions has been streamlined. It’s simpler to change between driving, walking, transit, cycling, and ride share.

There are also drop down menus for changing travel mode, time you want to leave, and options to avoid tolls or highways, which makes it quicker to drill down into your preferences when getting directions.

The recent routes that you’ve used will show up in the Recent section for quicker access.

Transit Cards in Maps

Transit cards added to the Wallet app are integrated into the Maps app, so you can see if your balance is low and add more funds without having to swap over to the Wallet app.
