Users of the Apple Maps service will soon find it easier to find places where you can get tested on COVID-19. Apple has opened a portal for healthcare providers who can add their location to Apple Maps. The description of the test point should indicate what is needed for testing, including requirements for directions. In addition, it should be indicated what kind of institution conducts testing – for example, a hospital or laboratory.
As with the Apple Contact Tracking feature, it will take some time for the feature to become practically available in the service. How soon it will work, Apple does not say, limiting itself to assuring in the answers section to frequently asked questions that it is trying to add as many points to the cards as possible and do it as soon as possible. In which regions the function will be available, it is also unclear.
