Apple Maps In iOS 9 Includes Transit Information In Major Cities; Note On CarPlay

iOS 9 is now available for download. There are a ton of new features in Apple's latest mobile operating system but listing and describing all of them would take forever. There are a few features that stand out though. Like transit information in Maps.

After I updated my iPhone to iOS 9 there was a pop-up notification that showed up (pictured below)...

If you live in one of the major metropolitan areas around the world, you will now be able to use Apple Maps to get up-to-date transit information. The following cities and extended areas are supported as of now...

Baltimore, Berlin, Chicago, London, Mexico City, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington D.C. Also included are several cities in China and areas of Connecticut and New Jersey around New York. Southern Ontario, Canada cities around Toronto like York, Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton and Waterloo Regions are also supported.

Check out these additional screenshots of Maps showing transit information.

Note on CarPlay: There is no way you can retrieve transit information or directions in Maps while connected to CarPlay. When trying to do so, the following message is displayed...

So if you're driving to the train station and trying to get the latest timings using your CarPlay head unit or dashboard, you will be out of luck. The only way to get this info is by disconnecting and searching on the iPhone itself. So you better do your homework on the transit you'll be taking before getting in your car and using CarPlay.
