Citymapper introduces iOS Lock Screen Navigation
Citymapper is all about delivering the right information on the spot, to get you to your destination seamlessly.
We’re incredibly excited to launch new Lock Screen Navigation on iOS 16.1. You can now follow the progress of your GO trip and get step-by-step guidance without unlocking your iPhone.
We have received lots of positive reviews from users everywhere since the feature was launched. We're glad you love it too! 💚
So... how does it work?
Our new Lock Screen Navigation is designed to give you the info you need, when you need it.
Just tap GO...
...and tap on Live Activity to return to your trip details.
Let's look at each stage...
