Apple’s iOS Feature Availability Page: Canada Goes 23 for 24


Apple has posted an iOS 6 Feature Availability page that denotes a list of countries where specific features are available in Maps, Siri, iTunes Store, Dictation and App Store:

Some iOS 6 features are not currently available in every country. Choose a feature below to see if it’s supported in your country.

Out of the 24 specific features listed, Canada is listed in every single category except for 3D Buildings, where the USA remains the sole country. Although Canada isn’t listed, users have spotted cities such as Toronto and Montreal in 3D, so expect this to slowly expand.

Canada is listed with just the USA and Mexico under Siri’s Restaurant Reservations feature. We are also part of a small group of countries for other Siri features such as Movie Showtimes, Movie Reviews, Movie Information, and Restaurant Reviews/Information.

Even though Siri was handicapped in its initial Canadian launch with the iPhone 4S, iOS 6 does the right thing and puts Canada into elite status for features (we’re also part of the first wave of launch countries). Consider ourselves lucky, eh?

    Nice to see Siri being able to function properly in Canada now. Can’t wait to try it on my iPad.

  • Thanks! 🙂

    Where should I go on launch best buy or Rogers?

  • MrMoto

    I suppose Siri will not work in French, right?

    I believe that Montréal was the first Canadian city there because the company that Apple bought to for those 3D maps is a Quebec company. That’s is also why Montreal was listed in the WWDC video last summer. Since Apple acquired the company, they obviously focused on the USA before any other countries.

    I don’t see a 3D option when viewing Toronto; even downtown. iPhone 4, iOS 6 GM.

  • Best Buy, if not busy. Or an obscure Rogers location.

  • MrXax

    Looks like the feature may not be supported on iPhone 4. Le sigh.

  • SLo

    Turn by turn navigation doesn’t have Canada in the list either?!


    Yes it does. check again

    I found rogers stores to be utterly useless, you’re better off at best buy, futureshop or the applestore itself.

    I’m more concerned about the google style transit support. I hope they have that.

  • MrXax

    I dunno if this is just because iOS 6 isn’t public yet, but Toronto transit support isn’t working; I’m just getting a “no matches” error.
