Using an iPhone or Mac, users can open Apple Maps and search for a popular location to see if parking information is available. Under the "More" menu, a button for parking opens an in-app Safari window to SpotHero's website that displays booking information.

Users can book parking by entering hourly or monthly times and proceeding with payment details.

Users can filter the results based on wheelchair accessibility, charging for electric vehicles, parking availability, and other criteria as first seen by MacRumors.

The new integration is the latest move from Apple to improve the Maps experience. In 2021 it rolled out new features in the US that let users provide ratings for businesses, points of interest and other notable locations.

Apple is also continuing to expand its redesign for Maps it introduced in 2016. The new design expanded to five additional countries in December 2022 that includes Belgium, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Switzerland.

    Have to find a spot where the service is available.
    I just checked MSG like it was shown in the photo, the Hollywood Bowl in LA and Soldier Field in Chicago. Worked for all of those places.
