Apple Maps app integrates SpotHero website for parking info

Apple Maps has made it easier for users in the U.S. and Canada to find parking spots with the integration of SpotHero.

SpotHero is an iPhone app that helps users not only to find but also to reserve and book parking spots for discounted prices in major cities by giving them access to thousands of lots, valets, and garage information. Now, Apple Maps users can enjoy the same experience within the app and save time and money.

SpotHero experience is now available on Apple Maps for iOS and macOS

For the first time, Apple Maps brings the SpotHero experience to macOS. Along with the iOS version of the app, Apple Maps on macOS brings SpotHero’s rich parking details for users to discover parking spots across U.S. and Canada.

SpotHero’s extensive dataset of parking facility details, photos and reviews is now available in the Apple Maps app on iPhone and Mac, allowing users to discover the best parking options in more than 8,000 locations across North America. This feature makes it easy for users to tailor parking options to their needs by filtering their searches with variables such as covered parking spaces, EV charging or wheelchair accessible spaces, among other options.

When at a notable landmark in a compatible region, users can easily access SpotHero by tapping on the “More” three dots button and tapping on the “Parking” option. A web view will open to show the parking options in the vicinity. Users can also filter their search to find the right parking for them like covered parking, valet, and more.

Recently, Apple Maps’ new immersive features like more detailed roads, 3D models of famous landmarks, augmented reality instructions, and more were expanded to five European countries. And cycling directions were made available across all 50 states in the U.S.

SpotHero is also available on App Store. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and requires iOS 13.0 or later.
