Apple Maps adds cycling directions in Seattle and California

With the arrival of iOS 14 last year, Apple added cycling directions directly into the Maps app. This new feature adds a lot of useful information for cyclists, but it’s only supported in certain areas. The good news is that availability is expanding quite a bit today.

That’s according to a report today from MacRumors, which states that cycling directions are going live in Seattle, Washington; and throughout the state of California. The report indicates that folks in those two areas have been receiving push notifications informing them that cycling directions are now available in their area.

Apple has updated its official feature availability page to reflect these new additions, too.

Along with these new additions, Apple Maps cycling directions are available in China’s mainland; London, United Kingdom; New York, New York; and Portland, Oregon.
