iOS 6 Beta 3 Enables Siri’s Turn by Turn Directions in Canada

With the announcement of iOS 6 at WWDC 2012, one of the most anticipated features was the addition of the new Apple Maps and turn by turn GPS, guided by Siri. However, with the first betas of iOS 6, this feature did not work in Canada. A couple days ago Apple enabled the feature in beta 2 and we were sent the following short video (thanks J.A.!) of turn by turn working in Canada:

With the release of today’s iOS 6 beta 3, it looks like the feature is fully functioning and working in Canada, allowing us to navigate safely around polar bears and igloos.

    Will it re-route if u make a wrong turn like the tom tom app does?

  • cyruskafaiwu

    in the announcement, they said it would re-route if it finds a better route during the journey so not sure.

    Does this mean that Siri location services will work in Canada? Would be nice for Siri to find me a restaurant when I’m hungry. Almost a year after getting my new 4s, and Siri keeps telling me “Sorry, I can’t find places in Canada”.

    I currently have the iPhone 4S running iOS 6 beta 3 and yes SteveB, Siri is now fully functioning in Canada and works with ALL of the advertised features
