Apple is expected to present new features in the upcoming iOS 9, and one of them will be the feature of public transportation directions. The new version of the popular mobile operating system is expected to be presented in June at the WWDC occasion.

Earlier, in iOS 6, Apple completely removed Google Maps from the system and replaced it with it’s own application, Apple Maps. Well, to say that the application was a bit raw, means nothing to say at all as the app was full of mistakes, with providing people with incorrect routes, that sometimes could end in a dangerous situation. The grievance of the users was so big that the head of Apple, Tim Cook even made a public apology for the inconvenience on the official site of Apple.

Apple done a great job since then, and proved to be as good as Google Maps, but i didn’t have the feature of public directions, and it’s not a surprise, that users preferred to use other navigating means rather than Apple Maps. Also, Apple Maps is the default navigating application in iOS, so it means that users aren’t able to use Google Maps when they type the address in other default apps like Mail or Safari.

Adding this feature might catch user’s attention to use Apple Maps.
