Apple Maps might finally get a much-requested feature in iOS 18

iOS updates usually bring a suite of new features to Apple’s hardware and first-party software – and one rumored upgrade coming with iOS 18 could be the Apple Maps feature you’ve been waiting for: custom routes.

On other apps with custom routes, the feature allows users to specify which route you’d rather take when traveling to your destination. Perhaps you’d rather take a slightly slower but more scenic path, or maybe you’re more familiar with a certain way of getting from A to B, or you might just not like one of the roads Apple Maps is asking you to travel.
