Apple has reportedly added turn-by-turn navigation support for Apple Maps in the UAE.
Apple is slowly but surely rolling out more of its services in the UAE and the one that has finally launched is turn-by-turn directions for Apple Maps.
While Apple Maps was available in the UAE to look for and find places, it did not offer turn-by-turn functionality until now. With the service now launched, turn-by-turn directions can be used in English and Arabic with support for driving as well as walking.
According to the report, Apple has also added new Indoor Maps for three locations:
- Dubai International Airport
- Festival City Mall
- The Dubai Mall
The report says that these new features will become available for users over the next several days.
