iOS 9’s Transit Maps will be limited at launch

Apple logoLast week we reported that one of the new features that Apple will be introducing in iOS 9 is Transit Maps. This will basically be an additional feature that can be found within the Apple Maps app and if you are eager to try it out and see if Apple has done it justice, you might be disappointed to learn that its availability could be a bit limited at launch.

This is according to the folks at 9to5Mac who claims that the feature will only be available in a handful of cities upon its release. So far they have heard that it will be available in the US, Canada, Europe, and China, but like we said even then it will only cover a few cities and not the entire region.

These cities include San Francisco and New York for the US, Toronto for Canada, London, Paris, and Berlin for Europe. For the Chinese market, Apple will be partnering with AutoNavi to source transit data. We suppose this is to be expected given that the feature is new, so we reckon Apple might want to start off small and ensure that everything is up and running perfectly before pushing it on en masse.

The next few cities that Apple plans on rolling out the feature to include Boston, Massachusetts, and Tokyo in Japan, which Apple is considering to be priority cities in its second wave. What this means is that for the rest of the world you guys will just have to wait until Apple has enabled the feature for you which hopefully won’t be too long.
