Apple modified many maps with the launch of iOS 13, and it is worth noting some of these updates. Unlike Look Around, Google’s Street View counterpart, but in better resolution and visibility. Another cool feature is to share ETA with your friends or spouse (Estimated Arrival Time), to know your location and time to wait.
But I was pleased by the ability to instantly post ETA. And they will know every time you return from the office. And with Maps’s settings again, you don’t have to mess up. We will also research the basics of calculating ETA by Apple Maps and how accurate it is. Let’s continue.
How We Can Share Live ETA With Contacts
Step 1: Search the target you want to visit and open Apple Maps. You are now going to see where and where you are on the map. To move forward, tap on Directions.
Step 2: In the next page, choose your transport mode. You’ve got four possibilities. Click Go to resume navigation when done. At the bottom of the screen, you should now show the Share ETA option. Click it. Tap it.
Step 3: If you hopefully won’t see it, swipe up from below to show a set of options, such as Share ETA.
Step 4: Some default contacts with a button will appear after you have selected it, in order to enter the contacts list. Click it and pick one. Pick it.
Step 5: A mobile number with which you share ETA will be sent with a email. Depending on your carrier scheme, email charges may apply.
Step 6: Description of destination and approximate time of arrival (ETA) are given in the letter. Today, if I am late, the email will be automatically updated.
Share ETA Automatically
It’s easy to share ETA with others. But it can easily become a chore every day to repeat. Especially in a organization in which such activities are automated easily. Frankly, I think we’re made lazy. You must first add this to your list of favorites. Search the venue, house, office or anywhere else, and swipe it up from below to add it to your list of favorites.
Wipe up and tap Everything, pick the’ I’ icon next to the location for which automated ETA is to be set up.
Check out the Add person option for a little bit. In that way, each time you leave the desired destination, you choose a contact to whom you want to send ETA. To save configuration, tap on Done.
This is everything, people. That is everything. Now your user will obtain ETA information, if you select the destination and start navigation. If changes occur, it will be modified via text message. I got an SMS because I sent my iPhone ETA update to Android. When the user uses an iPhone, it gets a note, pressing the Apple Maps app open.
You can now track the progress of your work on a live map. Sweet, huh? Sweet? You can never lie on this quick stop for a coffee or drink again on the reverse side.
How Apple Calculates ETA
Apple’s official estimates of ETA in maps never revealed, but one Google engineer did back in 2013. Maybe it will help bring things forward? Richard Russel, Google’s Managing & Selling Engineer, said that measuring ETA takes account of different metrics, such as’ official speed limit and recommendation rates, probable road rates, historical average speed data over certain time-limited periods (sometimes just averaged, and sometimes at certain times of day). This is quite interesting.
One Apple Insider user found Apple Maps to be conservative. This means that the app will deliberately predict a higher ETA to ensure that users reach them in time or even earlier. I believe that the sample size is too small. Well, I welcome Google Maps and Apple Maps ‘ ETAs. It won’t do any good either way to live too long. The trip is so much more important than the end. When it’s right, you’ll reach your destination.
Apple Maps have greatly improved, but Google Maps are still a long way ahead. The ETA feature in real time is really cool, especially if you have an iPhone or iPad. It simplifies and automates life so much. When exchanging ETA means something for you immediately, then the other person is definitely wise to tell about your arrival.
