Berlin is one of the 34 airports worldwide now on Apple indoor maps

Apple Maps now has indoor layouts of more than 30 airports across the globe, helping to make navigating through airports easier.

Passengers can now use Apple Maps at 34 airports worldwide to see accurate locations of gates, check-in counters, baggage claim, security checkpoints, shops, bathrooms, restaurants, and lounges.

The 34 airports include 25 in the United States but only 9 worldwide.

Airports added in Apple Maps include all three New York City area airports, Los Angeles International Airport, Amsterdam, Heathrow, Hong Kong and Gatwick..

A list of all airports that have Apple Maps indoor mapping on Apple’s website here.

How it works

Passengers open Apple Maps in an airport with indoor mapping and they see a “Look Inside” button below the terminal name.

They tap it and get a map of the ground floor. Zooming in gets additional locations for baggage claim areas, staircases, dining and shopping, toilets and boarding gates.

The passenger location appears as a blue dot and there’s also a directional arrow that turns as the iOS device moves, just like for outdoor maps.

From there, passengers can see the airport terminal shops and layout in 2D or swipe down with two fingers for a 3D view.

More tapping opens up indoor maps for different floors.
