Apple Maps now shows bike sharing locations, including in Brazil; resource expansions continue

In the quest to further improve your app Maps (Maps), Apple released a new feature that users around the world are already enjoying.

As of today, as the TechCrunch, 175 cities in 36 countries can obtain information from locations with bike sharing (bike sharing) including the Brazil!

Bike Sharing Maps

To search for the nearest place, just type ?Bike Sharing? in the search bar inside the app and, thus, the locations on the map will appear in blue.

The resource already existed before, but the information was limited to New York, Paris and London. This time, Apple got a partnership with Ito World and, therefore, managed to expand the resource to as many other locations.

For now, it is not possible to see if there are bicycles or places available, but there is a hope that this will soon become reality.
