iOS 14: what's new for Apple Maps and CarPlay

Apple Maps will also have a "service" function: it will indicate more precisely the Apple Store scattered throughout the territory, and will provide detailed information on the availability of the Genius Bar for device repair, Mac, iPhone or oPad you want. In practice, this is a sort of in-depth analysis compared to what is displayed now – to date, we are limited to the shop card and the Today at Apple sessions.

So we will soon have a more comprehensive picture (including availability in that store of the trade-in, for example), all without leaving the application. And the news will not be limited to the Apple Stores, and will also concern the availability of private rooms, IMAX cinemas, restaurants and clubs.

Small but succulent news also for CarPlay: with iOS 14 you can also view it on the car display background. At the moment only the wallpapers of iOS 13 are available (the update to the new ones will presumably arrive later), but already the function is able to also display the dark mode.

For CarPlay it is certainly a non-fundamental detail, but that users will like as it allows you to give a touch of color – and personalization – in addition to the infotainment of your car.
