Apple’s Maps app now lets users report hazards on a travel route. This new tool is a long-awaited feature for iPhone users, who previously had to navigate with third-party apps like Waze in order to self-report traffic incidents. 

The crowd-sourced feature lets Apple Maps users report car accidents, road hazards, and speed checks along their route. These reports will then be sent to Apple, and if enough reports are made, they’ll be shown on the map to all users.

To use the self-reporting tool, you’ll need to update your iPhone to iOS 14.5 or newer, and be actively navigating by car.
