The leaker, who has shared similar leaks in the past, stated in their post, “Love it or don’t, Apple doesn’t care – this is the new Maps ‘Live Activity’ for Lock Screen (all iPhones). – Seamless transition when unlocking. – View notifications over the map by swiping up as usual. – Shows most Lock Screen elements until unlocked (except widgets as far as I know).”

Up until now, people using the Maps have always had to keep the app open to track their destination.

Although the Lock Screen Map display won’t be interactive, it will dynamically update to show users their current location and navigation directions.

What users are really curious about is whether this feature is limited to Apple Maps or not.

As you know, although Apple has made significant progress in the field of maps, it still lags behind Google Maps and even Yandex.

For this reason, many iPhone owners prefer alternative apps instead of the default Apple Maps.

However, considering the company’s general policies, it doesn’t seem very likely that third-party applications will be supported.
