Lane guidance, a tremendously useful feature added to Apple Maps with iOS 11, has expanded to five additional countries following its initial launch in September.

Apple’s iOS Feature Availability webpage says that Apple Maps lane guidance is currently available in the United States and China, but MacRumors learned yesterday that the feature has now expanded to Australia, Canada, France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

The Australian version of the iOS Feature Availability webpage correctly indicated at post time that Apple Maps lane guidance was available in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Lane-change guidance is accessible in Apple Maps for iPhone, iPad and CarPlay.

With lane guidance, a set of directional arrows at the top of the screen in navigation mode indicate which lane your vehicle should be in to exit a freeway or complete a turn.

This is a big deal for users in major metropolitan areas and those who frequently cruise multi-lane highways. Siri also gives you audio lane guidance in navigation mode.

    I used it in Germany ever since iOS 11 was available. They probably only forgot to mention it on the website and now added it.

    Apple the most advance OS in the world still doesn’t have turn by turn navigation for all countries !

    They brag about maps each time while they still fail to deliver the feature worldwide !
