The iOS 14.5 beta, available to developers and public beta testers, adds a new Apple Maps feature that lets you report accidents, hazards, and speed checks along your route when getting directions.

So, some of the crowd source reporting features people like about Waze, but with less Googlie spyware.

Good to see Apple continues to improve their Apple Maps product.

Wazers are rabid fanbois. Apple missed that target userbase by a mile.

Well, I've been away from traffic for a long time:  I had to look up what Waze was.
