Apple will update its mapping app in iOS 8 and  will feature a better data and enhanced transit guidance courtesy of recent Apple acquisitions such as BroadMap, Embark and HopStop. Apple is also working on adding some augmented reality features and indoor mapping.

Augmented reality:

Transit directions allow a person to use an iPhone to travel from one destination to another via public transportation. iOS 8 Maps will be able to tap into train, subway, and bus data and provide enhanced directions to major airports. The functionality will exist in major cities, such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, and will expand to other locations across the United States and potentially other countries across the world around the public launch of iOS 8.

We can expect the company to debut iOS 8 during its annual WWDC conference this summer. The first iOS 8 beta will likely be released to developers at that time, and then iOS 8 will probably be released to the public sometime in the fall alongside the launch of the new iPhone 6 and its iPhone phablet counterpart.
