When you open Apple Maps and tap the search bar, you’ll see categories of services like Restaurants, Gas Stations, Fast Food, Pizza, and more. Apple switched the order so that users will see Hospitals, Pharmacies, Groceries, and Food Delivery first in the list, all important services in the midst of the pandemic.
