Those travelling through three of Canada’s busiest airports this Christmas season will now be able to do so with a little extra help, thanks to an update from Apple Maps.

Vancouver International AirportToronto Pearson International Airport, and Edmonton International Airport are part of the updated network, which consists of over 30 Canadian, US, and international airports.

With the new updates, Apple says travellers at applicable airports will now have access to a number of new features, which include the ability to:

  • Tap to “look inside” airport terminals to view boarding gates, security checkpoints, check-in desks, baggage claim carousels, and more

  • Ask Siri to find something nearby
  • See their location in real time with indoor positioning
  • Easily toggle between floors

In addition to airports, for those driving this holiday season, Maps is also your ideal companion. Key features for road users include:

  • Lane guidance and speed limits for major highways
  • Nearby search which helps you find points of interest such as gas stations
  • Automatically helps you remember where you parked your car
  • Helps you find the closest EV charging station
  • Tells you how much time a quick stop will add to your estimated arrival time

Vancouver, Toronto, and Edmonton join other global cities that now feature the Apple Maps update, including Amsterdam, Hong Kong, London, and Miami.
